(Newser) – Police are seeking a British kickboxer in the stabbing murder of a US Marine in Thailand. Dashawn Longfellow, 23, was on holiday after being wounded in Afghanistan when he was challenged to a fight in a Phuket bar by kickboxer Lee Aldhouse, 28, according to witnesses. The two brawled after Aldhouse punched Longfellow in the face, then Aldhouse followed him to his apartment, where he reportedly stabbed Longfellow twice in the chest, according to the Marine's girlfriend.

Aldhouse fled on a scooter as Longfellow's girlfriend tried in vain to resuscitate him, reports the Guardian. (Read more murder stories.)
