A man is being questioned on suspicion of murder after a fatal stabbing during a party at the home of a former world champion boxer.

The man, from the Norwich area, was arrested on Monday by officers investigating the knifing of Tafadzwa Kahn, 25, at the property belonging to Herbie Hide.

Mr Khan, known as Taffy, was pronounced dead at the scene after suffering several stab wounds.

The attack happened shortly after midnight at a private party in Long Lane in the village of Bawburgh on March 18.

Mr Hide's property remains sealed while forensic investigators examine the scene.

The detained man is being held at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre.

Family liaison officers are helping the family of Mr Khan, from St Giles Street, Norwich, police said.

A Home Office post-mortem examination found that cause of death was multiple stab wounds to the body.

Members of the local community who have any concerns are asked to contact local officers in the Costessey Safer Neighbourhood Team in the first instance.

Anyone who has information about the incident should contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
