Germany Extradites Woman Charged In La. Double Murder
CLINTON, La. (AP) — A woman has been extradited from Germany to Louisiana to face charges that she killed an East Feliciana Parish couple in April 2014.
State Troopers say 31-year-old Dulce Maria Funez arrived in Baton Rouge Friday. East Feliciana Parish jail records show her in custody there Saturday.
In May 2014, Funez and Armando Reyes Diaz each were indicted on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 53-year-old Eddie Hall and his wife, 51-year-old Connie Hall, at their Ethel home.
Funez was arrested in Germany in December, and on June 15, German courts ruled that she could be sent to the United States for trial.
The U.S. Marshals Service and others continue searching for Diaz, with officials offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information.
