LONDON, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Arthur Simpson-Kent, the boyfriend of murdered EastEnders alum Sian Blake, has been arrested in Ghana for allegedly killing the actress and their two sons.

The family was reported missing Dec. 16 and their bodies were discovered buried in the garden of their London home Tuesday.

The BBC said Sunday Simpson-Kent, 48, was arrested in a coastal tourist area where he had been cutting a coconut when armed police surrounded him.

His whereabouts were revealed to law-enforcement by a cafe owner in the area who recognized him.

Blake, 43, played Frankie Pierre on the British soap EastEnders 1996-97. Her sons were 4 and 8 when they died.
