Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd transferred out of jail for extradition to UK

Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd has been transferred out of prison in Tbilisi as he undergoes extradition back to the UK following 10 months on the run.

Pictures released by the Special Penitentiary Service of Georgia on Wednesday showed a handcuffed Shepherd being led by two uniformed officers into a secure cell in the back of a van.

A statement from the service said the 31-year-old would be handed over to British police officers at Tbilisi International Airport later in the day.

He will be flown back to the UK to appear before a judge at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

He will then start his six-year prison sentence over the death of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown.

A jury found Shepherd guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence in his absence after he skipped bail last summer.
