US court rules in favour of Dahlgren’s extradition

A federal court in Alexandria, US, has ruled in favour of extraditing Kevin Dahlgren to the Czech Republic where he is wanted on suspicion of four counts of murder. The twenty-year-old is suspected of having killed four of his Czech relatives with whom he was spending the summer. He fled to the US shortly after the family was murdered in their home in Brno and was arrested on an Interpol warrant at Washington Airport. The court said the evidence against Dahlgren presented by Czech investigators was convincing. The defense has a week to appeal the verdict.
