THAILAND : British kickboxer Lee ”Pitbull” Aldhouse serve 25 years for murder of American Dashawn Longfellow

A Thai court on Thursday sentenced a British kickboxer to 25 years in jail for the murder of a former US Marine on a resort island in 2010. The Phuket provincial court found Lee Aldhouse guilty of stabbing to death ex-Marine Dashawn Longfellow after being beaten by the American during a brawl at a Phuket bar. The court reduced Aldhouse’s sentence from a life sentence because he pleaded guilty. Aldhouse was extradited to Thailand last year after his appeal had been rejected by Britain’s High Court, making him the first criminal suspect ever extradited from England to the Southeast Asian country under a 1911 extradition treaty.—AP
