A SUSPECT was arrested in a swoop 100 miles from a country mansion where a hotelier worth £300 million was stabbed to death.
Sir Richard Lexington Sutton, one of Britain’s richest men, was fatally attacked while his wife Anne Schreiber, 65, also suffered knife wounds and was left in a “critical” condition in hospital.
Three hours after the shocking killing in Dorset, police deployed a dramatic “hard stop” 100 miles away in West London to pull over a Range Rover it had been tracking across five counties.
A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and police later confirmed he was known to the victim.
The Sun understands he was living with the couple.
He was taken to hospital with "self-inflicted" injuries which were not believed to be life-threatening.
