18th April 2011, Comments 0 comments

An Estonian court has approved the extradition of a man wanted in Britain on suspicion of killing a Latvian woman two months ago, the Baltic News Service reported Monday.

The court in Estonia's capital Tallinn gave a green light for the handover of the man, identified only as J. Matjuhha, born in 1988, BNS said.

In February, Britain issued a European arrest warrant for him on suspicion of having strangled a Latvian woman in the town of Mirfield in Yorkshire, northern England.

He reportedly was arrested in his homeland Estonia just days after the victim, identified in British news reports as 36-year-old Nadija Ondzule, was found dead in an apartment in the town.
