Extradition process begins for area murder suspect jailed in Germany
ETHEL - Local and federal authorities have started the extradition process for a woman jailed in Germany facing charges in Louisiana.
Dulce Maria Funez, 34, is wanted in connection with the death of Connie and Eddie Earl Hall. The couple was found stabbed to death in their Ethel home in April 2014.
Funez was arrested in Europe when she talked with police about a situation not related to the case in the United States.
The district attorney in East Feliciana, Sam D'Aquilla, said the death penalty was taken off the table. Germany does not extradite suspects to places where there is a possibility of a death sentence since the death penalty is against the law there.
Armandao Reyes Diaz, 31, is also wanted in connection with the Hall's death. He is still wanted.
