Fugitive to be deported
Jan, 30 2007 - 6:10 AM
ALBERTA/630 CHED - American prosecutors have promised not to seek the death penalty in a bid to have a man arrested near Calgary extradited to Arkansas on two murder charges.
US authorities say they had no alternative but to drop the threat of the death penalty against Timothy Wallace in order for Canada to agree to deport him.
Wallace, a former soldier, is charged in the 2005 shooting deaths of his former wife and her boyfriend in Arkansas. Wallace argues he acted in self-defence.
