Advertising exec. could face murder charges in U.S.

Belize City businessman Rhett Fuller was today arrested and now faces possible extradition to the United States. Fuller’s arrest is the result of a request by the United States government to hand him over to stand trial for an incident nine years ago in Florida. Although Fuller was arrested this morning and taken to court this afternoon, information is still sketchy, but News Five understands that Fuller allegedly witnessed a murder. When the alleged gunman asked him to testify, he is reported to have left the U.S. without giving the vital testimony. In return, the accused turned around and pointed the finger at Fuller as the triggerman. Fuller’s lawyer, Kirk Anderson says the extradition hearing is set for November third, but that he will be seeking to have the case pushed back to a later date.
