British man linked to Thai murder probe jailed for fraud by court in Cambodia

A British man suspected of involvement in the gangland-style killing of another Briton in the Thai resort town of Pattaya has been sentenced to eight months in prison for fraud by a Cambodian court.

Toby James Nelhams was one of three men sought by Thai police over the January 24 shooting death of Tony Kenway as he sat in his parked Porsche SUV.

Thai media reported that Mr Kenway's widow described him as a website designer, but that police linked him to a gambling website, among other activities, and that the suspects were allegedly involved with financial crimes.

Phnom Penh Municipal Court found Nelhams guilty of fraud but dropped charges of entering Cambodia illegally, working without a passport or work permit.

It is unclear if Thailand ever formally sought his extradition.
