Court for ex-Marine accused in Philippines murders

/ 04:13 PM May 09, 2013

ALBANY, New York— Authorities seeking the extradition of a former U.S. Marine arrested last month in upstate New York say they have linked him to guns used in a double killing in 2011 in the Philippines.

Police arrested 35-year-old Timothy Kaufman on a fugitive from justice warrant. He’s charged along with two other men of shooting to death a retired Irish police officer and his girlfriend.

Philippine authorities seeking his return allege a pre-meditated killing in an area known for its sometimes seamy club scene.

Kaufman’s grandfather, Sidney Kaufman, says he’s a fine person who served his country.
