AKIPRESS.COM - Arrest A thief who was spared jail has been arrested for stabbing a British adventurer to death in Mongolia, reports Daily Mail.

The 31-year-old man, identified only at T., was found with £300-worth of local currency and a passport believed to have been taken from Steve Nash, who was in Asia on a paragliding expedition.

The 53-year-old's body was found on September 1 in Arkhangai province, central Mongolia, with stab wounds to his chest, and friends say he was killed for his wallet.

Police spokesman Baatarkhuu Buyant said that Nash had been stabbed in the chest and died of blood loss.

He added the suspect had previously been given a suspended sentence in 2016 for stealing.

Nash, from Helsby, Cheshire, was hiking and paragliding across remote terrain with his friend and fellow pilot Gareth Aston when he was reportedly targeted by assailants.
