Texas law student fights extradition to Louisiana

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A San Antonio law student has vowed to fight extradition after his arrest on murder and arson warrants from Louisiana.

Meanwhile, questions surrounding the murder warrants against Matthew Edward Alexander continue. The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/1oWnyV1) reports the warrants accuse the 29-year-old student of setting fire to his ex-employer's home in West Monroe, Louisiana, earlier this month as two people slept inside. However, no one was injured.

Federal authorities said the charges weren't correctly entered into an FBI database by the investigating agency in Louisiana and that they should have been two counts of attempted murder and arson. However, at a federal detention hearing Thursday in San Antonio, U.S. Magistrate Andrew Carruthers set Alexander's bond at $1 million, saying his paperwork still shows that Alexander's charged with murder.
