A 23-yr-old member of the Akha hill tribe in Northern Thailand has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of British music teacher and composer David Crisp.

Awe Ye Piang, was sentenced by the Chiang Mai provincial court in Northern Thailand, but two other hill tribe men who were involved have still not yet been caught.

Crisp, 56, originally from Derby, but more recently a popular teacher and head of music at Lasswade Seconday School in Bonnyrigg, Edinbugh, was murdered last year for the equivalent of £100 and a few personal belongings such as an electronic keyboard and television set.
