Irishman extradited over Spain killing

AN Irishman wanted over the killing of a British man on the Costa del Sol has been arrested by police.

Brian McConville (pictured), from Dublin, was detained on a European Arrest Warrant in Germany.

The 29-year-old was named as a suspect in a Spanish police appeal two months after Londoner Paul Feathers was stabbed to death at his flat in Benalmadena on April 21, 2010.

Mr Feathers (32) was attacked after getting into an argument with two men he let into his flat in Benalmadena.

Mr McConville will appear at a court in Benalmadena after being extradited from Germany.

Mr Feathers's killing is understood to have been drug related.
