POLICE last night charged a Latvian man with the murder of Suffolk businessman Phillip Saville.
The married father-of-two from Little Wratting, near Haverhill, died from head injuries in August 2001 after a late-night fight in Soho, London.
Mr Saville, 40, had been enjoying a night out with friends when he was fatally wounded in a crowded street. The fight was thought to have involved about six men and he died 16 days later.
