Murder suspect extradited from Morocco and due in court
Wednesday 20 February 2013
A Chinese businessman wanted over the murders of a family is being extradited to the UK from Morocco.
Anxiang Du was arrested in Morocco last year on suspicion of killing university lecturer Jifeng “Jeff” Ding, his wife Ge “Helen” Chui and their two daughters Alice, 12, and Xing, 18.
Northamptonshire Police said Mr Du’s extradition has been approved by the Moroccan Ministry of Justice in conjunction with the Home Office, and he was due to arrive last night from Casablanca. He is expected to appear at Northampton magistrates’ court today. Deputy Chief Martin Jelley said: “On behalf of Northamptonshire Police, I would like to thank all those who have been involved in this successful extradition, including Michael Ellis MP for his considerable support in progressing this with the relevant authorities.”
The family were found stabbed to death at their home in Wootton, Northamptonshire, on April 29 2011 .
Mr Du was arrested last July. Detectives said that they believed he could have been evading capture in Morocco for more than a year. He worked at a herbal medicine shop in Birmingham. He went missing a day after losing what had been described as a bitter court battle over his shared business interests with the Ding family.
