The Metropolitan Police force says detectives detained Arthur Simpson-Kent at Heathrow Airport early Friday on suspicion of murdering his partner Sian Blake and her children, 8-year-old Zachary and 4-year-old Amon.

Ghanaian police arrested the 48-year-old Jan. 9 in the western coastal town of Butre. He did not fight extradition, agreeing to be sent back to Britain.

He fled to Ghana after speaking to detectives in Britain on Dec. 16 about Blake and the children, who had been reported missing. Their bodies were found in the yard of their London home in January.

Blake, 43, appeared in the long-running soap opera "EastEnders" in 1996-1997.
