A man was arrested on suspicion of murder in an early morning raid by armed police in Corby today (Wednesday, December 3).

Officers swooped on an address in Conyger Close, Great Oakley, at about 5am and arrested Michael McInerney, 33.

The suspect was wanted in connection with the murder of a 34-year-old dad from Watford, Arulchelvan ‘Nick’ Prasanna, who was killed in a car park last year when he fell from a moving van.

The operation this morning was being carried out by officers from Northamptonshire in partnership with Hertfordshire Police.

A spokesman for the Hertfordshire force said: “Michael McInerney, 33, was arrested at an address in Corby this morning following a joint operation between detectives from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Major Crime Unit and assistance from Northamptonshire Police.

“He was arrested under a European arrest warrant and will appear at Luton Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday, December 3) charged with murder.

“Three further men were also arrested this morning on suspicion of assisting an offender.”

Two other men were arrested in connection with the murder in March this year.
