Extradition delayed for suspect in Fairfield jewelry store killings
The man accused of shooting a husband and wife in their Fairfield jewelry store last year filed an appeal Tuesday that will delay his extradition to Connecticut from New York. Christopher DiMeo was expected to appear in a Connecticut courtroom Thursday to face murder and robbery charges. DiMeo, 23, is already serving a life sentence for killing a Long Island, NY jewelry storeowner. He could face the death penalty in Connecticut for the February 2, 2005 killings of Tim and Kim Donnelly. A state prosecutor will decide whether to seek capital punishment after DiMeo is returned to Connecticut.
