A MAN arrested on suspicion of murder has been extradited to the UK.

Romanian national Cristian Sabou was transferred into Sussex Police custody today.

The 27-year-old is accused of the murder of Valerie Graves in Bosham, West Sussex in December 2013.

Valerie was 55 when she was found in her bedroom at Smugglers Lane.

Detectives from the Surrey and Sussex major crime team attended a hearing in Romania to work with the authorities there.

On the fifth anniversary of Ms Graves’s death last December, relatives told how no one had given up hope on the investigation.

A European Arrest Warrant was issued, and Sabou was detained by Romanian police on July 10. He will appear before Brighton Magistrates' Court tomorrow.

Police have warned the public that proceedings are active, so opinions on the case should not be posted on social media.
