Judge denies Fairfield jewelry store murder suspect's extradition challenge
The man accused of killing two Fairfield jewelers last year has lost his fight to stop his extradition from New York to Connecticut.
A New York prosecutor told News 12 Connecticut that a judge on Friday rejected Christopher DiMeo's extradition challenge. DiMeo is currently serving a life sentence in New York for killing a jeweler on Long Island. DiMeo's attorney had argued that his client never fled from Connecticut and therefore the New York court lacks jurisdiction to extradite him.
DiMeo, who is charged with two counts of felony murder in Connecticut, could face the death penalty. Fairfield police say DiMeo could be back in Connecticut as early as Monday.
