Marlon O'Reilly Murder Suspect Held After Thailand Flight

A man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a father-of-two who relatives claim was shot dead in a pub in a case of mistaken identity.

The 33-year-old was detained as he got off a plane from Thailand at Birmingham International Airport on Wednesday night, West Midlands Police said.

He is due to be questioned in connection with the death of Marlon O'Reilly, also 33, who was shot as he drank with friends in the Dovecote Pub in Cockshut Hill, Birmingham, on May 10.
