Tilbury Man Due In Court Over Weybread Murders
A man from Tilbury is to appear in court charged with the murder of an elderly Suffolk couple after he was extradited from Luxembourg to the UK.
42 year-old Ali Qazimaj is due to appear at Ipswich Magistrates' Court on Friday.
The charges relate to the deaths of couple 75 year-old Peter Stuart and his 69 year-old wife Sylvia.
Mr Stuart was found with multiple knife wounds in woodland near his home in Weybread, Suffolk, on Friday June 3.
Police are continuing to search for Mrs Stuart, who was last seen on May 29 and is also feared to have been killed.
Qazimaj was detained on a European Arrest Warrant in Luxembourg on June 16 and was collected by police officers from the Suffolk and Norfolk joint major investigation team and Suffolk extradition officers and brought back to the UK earlier on Thursday.
He was then taken into custody at Martlesham police investigation centre, near Ipswich.
