US requests extradition of Mexican suspect in Texas slaying

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexican official says the United States has formally requested the extradition of a Mexican citizen who is accused of arranging the killing of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend in Texas.

The federal official said Brenda Delgado, who made the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List, was informed of the request Monday. Mexican authorities arrested her last week in northern Mexico and she is being held in a Mexico City prison.

The official says that if Delgado does not appeal the request she could be extradited in about two to three months. The official was not authorized to speak about the case and insisted on anonymity.

The 33-year-old Delgado allegedly hired two people to kill dentist Kendra Hatcher in September. She faces charges of capital murder and unlawful flight in Dallas County.
