Arrested partner ‘admits he murdered ex-Eastenders star because she was terminally ill’

THE partner of Sian Blake has reportedly admitted killing the former EastEnders star and their two children.

Arthur Simpson-Kent is said to have told officers he had “no regrets” over the alleged murders.

Officers allegedly said: “He said the mum was going to die and it was better for them all to die together,” according to the Sun.

Police reportedly said Mr Simpson-Kent claimed that he killed the ex-soap actress because she was terminally ill with motor neurone disease.

Mr Simpson-Kent fled the UK just days before the bodies of Blake, 43, Zachary, eight, and Amon, four, were found in the garden of the family home in Erith, South London.

He was yesterday paraded before the media in handcuffs and ignored questions.

Ghanaian detective Prosper Agblor reportedly said: “Whether or not he has family ties in Ghana is not of any importance.

“Whether he’s Ghanaian or from the moon, he has committed a crime.”

Reports suggest that Scotland Yard has made no formal extradition request despite having send four detectives to the West African country.

Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Gwyn said yesterday: “I’d like to pass on my extreme thanks to the Ghanaian police for their assistance.

“Due to ongoing legal proceedings I’m unable to provide further updates.”
