Polish millionairess Kinga Legg was battered to death with a gilded lamp in the bathroom of Room 503 on the fifth floor of Le Bristol, the five-star Paris hotel, on May 26, 2009.
Ian Griffin, the man who shared her room and subsequently went on the run was captured in England shortly afterwards. He has been in Wandsworth prison ever since, undergoing psychiatric tests, and is reported to have attempted suicide several times. The courts have now ruled that he is fit to stand trial and he will be extradited to France.
