LONDON (AP) - British police say they have charged the boyfriend of a British actress with murdering her and her two young children.

The Metropolitan Police force says Arthur Simpson-Kent is accused of murdering his partner Sian Blake and her children, 8-year-old Zachary and 4-year-old Amon.

Simpson-Kent, 48, was arrested early Friday at Heathrow Airport after arriving on a flight from Ghana. Ghanaian police arrested him on Jan. 9 in the western coastal town of Butre. He did not fight extradition.

He flew to Ghana after speaking to detectives in Britain on Dec. 16 about Blake and the children, who had been reported missing. Their bodies were found in the yard of their London home in January.

Blake, 43, appeared in the long-running soap opera “EastEnders” in 1996-1997.
