Jack Shepherd handed himself into police in Georgia

The hunt had been on for Jack Shepherd following his trial at the Old Bailey over the death of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown, from Clacton-on-Sea.

Described as "cowardly" by his own lawyer, a warrant was issued for Shepherd's arrest and an worldwide manhunt was launched to bring him to justice.

Shepherd is expected to make his first court appearance in Tbilisi on Friday. He has caused the loss of my sister's life and, whilst he's been off in Georgia, he claims that he went to see friends and he has always wanted to see the scenery there - nearly like he was claiming it was a holiday.

However, the Metropolitan Police added that once identity was secured, extradition proceedings would "begin immediately" against Shepherd, who was wanted on an worldwide arrest warrant.

He handed the controls to her after driving the boat at double the 12-knot speed limit - but both were thrown into the Thames after the craft hit a log and capsized.

(PA/AAP) Brown, 24, had met Shepherd on a dating website and they had spent the evening at a restaurant together in London in December 2015. "It is vital Charlotte Brown's family see justice done", he added.

"We will seek to swiftly extradite him to Britain", he said.

Writing on Twitter after Shepherd's arrest, Javid said: "I welcome the news that Jack Shepherd is in police custody in Georgia".

The decision on whether Shepherd will be extradited to the United Kingdom is expected to take several weeks.

Traditionally, if you look at Six Nations history over the years, it's a big gain-line contest. Owen Farrell is confident he will be fit to lead England against Ireland in Dublin.

Don't be surprised if Shepherd is not chalking up the days of his sentence in a British cell for some time to come.

Shepherd claimed on local TV reading stories about the case had left him feeling upset.

Manslaughter is is an internationally-recognised serious crime - so the UK's request for the return of a killer should be automatically recognised as valid, in the same way that such a request from Georgia would be acted on.

"Someone who's run away from this doesn't scream an innocent man's actions to me".

Georgian law states extradition is granted if an individual has been sentenced to at least four months in prison.

"My opinions towards Jack Shepherd is that he's a very crass, reckless man, who managed to abscond and stick two fingers up at the judiciary", Mr Brown said.

The Crown Prosecution Service said on Thursday it was "consulting with the authorities in Georgia to progress our extradition request".

After his conviction an global arrest warrant was issued. Despite being on the run, he applied to the court of appeal via his lawyers for the right to appeal his conviction and was granted permission on 19 December.
