The man in his 30s, who would have been a teenager at the time of the killing in 1994, was first arrested in April.

Detectives investigating the murder of six-year-old Rikki first arrested the man on Tuesday April 19 at an address in Peterborough.

He was originally released on police bail until June 15 and has now been re-bailed to three months time.

Rikki was last seen leaving for school at around 9am on the morning of November 28.

His body was found in a wooded area of Eye Road, close to Willoughby Court at 12.05pm the following day - five minutes' walk from his house in the Welland Estate.

A post mortem examination concluded that Rikki had died as a result of a compression of the neck – strangulation.
