Man Held After Couple’s Stabbing Deaths

A man who was being hunted by police over the stabbing deaths of a couple has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Viktoras Bruzaswas stopped in a vehicle by officers in Oxshott, Surrey, just before 6pm.

A manhunt for the 38-year-old was launched after the bodies of Patrick and Gillian Kettylewere found in the early hours of Thursday by a relative – believed to be one of their teenage children.

The couple, in their 50s, died in a “sustained and violent” attack at their home in the village of Fetcham, Surrey,

An All Ports Warning had been issued for Bruzas, a Lithuanian builder living in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey, while the National Crime Agency and Interpol were in touch with the Lithuanian authorities.

Another man in his 30s was earlier arrested in Walton-on-Thames on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. He has been released on police bail.

The victims and the two suspects were known to each other, but the exact nature of the relationships are still being established, Surrey Police said.

A neighbour of the Kettyles said she thought she heard the couple’s two dogs barking during the night.

The woman, who asked not to be named, said she heard loud barking and a man’s voice trying to quieten them down.

Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said Mr and Mrs Kettyle are believed to have run a successful building development company.

He said the couple have two children – a 16-year-old son and a daughter whose age has not been disclosed.

Mr Kettyle is understood to have retired recently and the couple have been described as “very nice, very friendly” people.

Det Ch Insp Mark Preston, from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, said: “This is a tragic incident which has shaken the close community in Fetcham.

“I hope the arrest this evening goes some way to reassure the public that we have been relentless in our efforts during this fast-moving and ongoing investigation.”
