An English television researcher who was arrested in Malta after hiding for 16 years has been convicted of murdering a man at a marijuana farm. The man was on Europe’s most-wanted list.
Christopher Guest More was wanted for torturing and killing Brian Waters in front of his children in Tabley Cheshire in 2003. The 43-year-old was living under an alias in Malta, where he was arrested in a joint operation between the Maltese and British police in 2019.
More was found guilty of murder, as well as a plot to cause serious bodily harm to a second man who worked on the farm. Three other men: John Wilson, James Raven, and Otis Matthews, are all serving life sentences for the same murder.
More is believed to have owed his victim over £20,000 in marijuana. The man previously travelled to Spain, South Africa, Mozambuique, and Turkey, before settling in Malta where he called himself Andrew Lamb. He was working as a yacht captain when he was arrested.
