BANGKOK (AP) — Thai police say they have arrested a suspect sought by Indonesian authorities for allegedly killing the son of an Indonesian millionaire last year.

Immigration police detective Col. Chartchai Eimsaeng says Mulyadi Budiman was arrested at a Bangkok airport Tuesday as he planned to travel to Thailand's northeastern border.

Chartchai says the 19-year-old is the fourth suspect in the alleged murder of 23-year-old William Lim in Jakarta last March. The other three suspects were arrested last year.

The men are accused of wrapping Lim in plastic bag and pounding him to death with a hammer and a pipe. They are facing charges of forceful assault and murder.

Chartchai said Budiman will immediately be deported to Indonesia.

Lim's family owns a kitchenware company in Indonesia.
