A man has today been charged with murdering a Medway medical student in Borneo.
The 23-year-old Malaysian fishmonger is accused of stabbing Aidan Brunger, from Gillingham, to death in a bar.
Zulkipli Abdullah is also charged with murdering Mr Brunger's friend Neil Dalton. A guilty verdict carries the death penalty.
Police said four other suspects have not been charged and will be witnesses.

The 22-year-olds were found with fatal stab wounds at about 4am on Wednesday, August 6.
