Arthur Simpson-Kent remanded in Ghana over murder of EastEnders actress Sian Blake and sons

By Claire Cromie

Arthur Simpson-Kent has been remanded in custody in Ghana and told he will face an extradition hearing over the murder of Sian Blake and her children.

The EastEnders actress was found buried in the garden of her family home in Erith, Kent, along with her two sons.

Her partner Arthur Simpson-Kent was arrested in a beach resort in the west of the African country on Saturday and he appeared before Kaneshie Magistrates' Court in Accra today.

He has been remanded for two weeks following the deaths of Miss Blake and their two young sons, Zachary, eight, and four year-old Amon.

But the British Government has not yet filed the request for his extradition, according to the BBC.

Scotland Yard is under investigation over why it took so long to call in homicide detectives and find Miss Blake and her two sons.
