The wheels of justice are still turning to get the man arrested for the murder of the Ding family extradited from Morocco.
Jifeng ‘Jeff’ Ding, Helen Chui and their two daughters, 18-year-old Xing ‘Nancy’ and Alice, 12, were found brutally stabbed at their home in Pioneer Close, Wootton, last year. They died on the day of the Royal Wedding but their bodies were not discovered until two days later when concerned neighbours raised the alarm.
Anxiang Du was the only person police were looking for in connection with the murder.
Detectives tracked Mr Du, from Coventry, to London but from there the trail appeared to go cold.
In the past 14 months they have followed hundreds of leads and taken thousands of statements in an attempt to find him.
Following a manhunt which took officers from Northampton to China, to Spain and finally Tangier, Mr Du was arrested on July 7.
A Home Office spokeswoman said: “Mr Du has been arrested in Morocco.
“The extradition process, including the length of time it is likely to take, is a matter for the Moroccan authorities.
“Any matters regarding his trial in the UK would be a matter for the courts.”
