The brother-in-law of a British expatriate has been arrested over the couple’s alleged murder in Thailand.

Police commander for Phrae province said the bodies of 64-year-old retired petroleum engineer Alan Hogg, understood to be from Edinburgh, and his 61-year-old wife Nhot Suddaen were discovered on their property.

He said the killers were arrested after they stole the couple’s pick-up truck and then confessed to being hired by her brother to kill them.

The couple, who had been together for 30 years, were said to have been dead for about a week.
