Newsday on April 17, 2012 released the following:
“After a year of hearings at the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court, the former wife of murdered US war veteran Balram “Balo” Maharaj is facing extradition after Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar ruled yesterday that the State had sufficiently argued a prima facie case.
When the matter was called yesterday, Ayers-Caesar said that she was of the opinion that the State, which was represented by attorney Larry Lalla, had sufficiently established their case against 47-year-old Doreen Alexander, and as a result the accused would be facing extradition. Alexander, who had been indicted in the United States for Maharaj’s death by a grand jury at the US District Court for the District of Columbia, Washington, DC, was wanted for her alleged involvement in Maharaj’s kidnapping in 2005.
The three-count indictment alleges Alexander conspired with Anderson Straker and others to kidnap Dinesh Maharaj between the period January 1 and February 28, 2005, in order to compel a third party to pay a ransom. She is also accused of conspiring with others to kidnap Balram Maharaj during the same period, and aiding and abetting the seizure or detention of Balram Maharaj, in order to compel another person to pay a ransom between March 1 and April 15, resulting in his death.”
