No extradition in German's Va. slayings
The United States government is refusing to transfer a German diplomat's son from a Virginia prison where he is serving two life terms for murder.
Attorney General Eric Holder said in a Tuesday letter to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell that Jens Soering won't be considered for an international transfer without the state's consent.
Soering is serving two life terms in Virginia for the 1985 stabbing deaths of his then-girlfriend's parents, Derek and Nancy Haysom, in Bedford County.
The German government had requested the transfer and Democratic former Gov. Tim Kaine had asked the U.S. government to approve it.
Weeks later, Republican McDonnell took office and emphatically rescinded the request.
