One of the wealthiest men in the UK, 83-year-old hotel owner Richard Sutton was killed on the grounds of his estate in the southwest of England.
This is reported by The Times.
The attack was reportedly carried out on the evening of 7 April at his home near the town of Gillingham in Dorset.
Police, who arrived at the scene after a call from a neighbor, found Sutton with a knife wound.
A 60-year-old woman, presumably the wife of an entrepreneur, was also stabbed. She was taken by helicopter to Bristol Hospital and is in critical condition.
Police arrested a 34-year-old man from Gillingham who was known to the victim in connection with the attack.
The police immediately established that the suspect in the murder had left the estate in the direction of London. His car was tracked for almost 200 km and the man was detained in the British capital.
The suspect in the murder was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The motive for the murder is still unknown, and an investigation has been launched.
Richard Sutton, with a fortune of 301 million pounds ($415 million), was ranked 435th in the list of the richest people in the UK, which is traditionally published by the Sunday Times newspaper. He owned several hotels.
Recall that in December 2017, billionaire and founder of the pharmaceutical corporation Apotex Barry Sherman and his wife Honey were found dead in Canada. The couple was found in their own home in Toronto.
