Man arrested on suspicion of murder following stabbing
A man with Brighton links has been arrested in connection with a murder in Hertfordshire.
Ian John McLoughlin was taken to a Hertfordshire police station after being arrested in London on suspicion of murder at 1am today.
Police had appealed for information on his whereabouts after Graham Buck, 66, died intervening in a suspected robbery in a Hertfordshire village on Saturday and another man was hurt.
McLoughlin was on day release from prison, serving a sentence for murder.
Peter Halls was stabbed in Brighton in 1990.
Mr Halls ran The Volks Tavern in Madeira Drive, The Eastern in Eastern Road, and the American Bar of the Norfolk Resort Hotel in King’s Road.
On September 9, 1990, the 55-year-old was found dead in his flat in Sillwood Road, Brighton, after being stabbed three times in the neck.
The man hurt in the suspected robbery, two doors from Mr Buck's home, in which thousands of pounds were stolen, has been released from hospital and is currently in what police described as a "place of safety".
McLoughlin is being questioned at a police station in Hertfordshire.
