UK murder suspect's extradition case set for 2013

Court News Posted on

A U.K. court will wait until next year to hold the extradition hearing of a Briton accused of hiring a hit man to kill his wife during their honeymoon in South Africa — after his mental state is reviewed.

The lawyer for Shrien Dewani says he has flashbacks and is a "husk" of his former self. Attorney Clare Montgomery said Monday it is unthinkable he would be able to plan any escape.

Dewani's mental condition will be reviewed in April, with a full extradition hearing set for July.

The 32-year-old is accused of arranging the murder of his wife, Anni, 28. She was found shot dead in an abandoned taxi in Cape Town's Gugulethu township in November 2010.

In March, a British court halted Dewani's extradition, citing his mental state.
