PRESS Staff Report
According to reports in India, a New Delhi Court has recommended convicted murderer Amit Muddamalle Livingston be extradited back to the U.S.
On Feb 7, 2007 Livingston was found guilty for shooting and killing of his girlfriend, Hermila Garcia, in 2005 on South Padre Island. He was sentenced to 23 years in prison. The MEA said the judgment allowed Livingston to linger out of custody on bond for 60 days so that he could prepare his affairs before serving the sentence, but he failed to surrender before the authorities after that period and fled the United States to his birth country of India. He was eventually apprehended by Indian National Police in his hometown of Hyderabad on May 6, 2014.
