Extradition of Phuket “kickbox killer’ suspect “may take years’

PHUKET: The City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London has told the Gazette that the extradition hearing of British national Lee Aldhouse “can take months or years”.

Aldhouse remains wanted in Thailand for the stabbing murder of American Dashawn Longfellow in Rawai in August last year.

However, court official Russel Sykes said the former kickboxer remains remanded in custody at Wandsworth Prison in England until March 28, when he is to once again appear in the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court. The hearing, scheduled at 10am, is marked “for review”, Mr Sykes said.

Aldhouse previously appeared in the same court on February 1 and March 1.
