Former Marine in Philippines murder case due in court

ALBANY, N.Y. — A former U.S. Marine accused of killing two people in the Philippines is due in an upstate New York court for an extradition hearing.

Timothy Kaufman has been jailed since his arrest in April near his grandfather’s Albany-area home. He is one of three men charged by authorities in the Philippines with the 2011 killing of a retired Northern Ireland police officer and his girlfriend. Philippine authorities seeking the 35-year-old Kaufman’s return say he participated in a premeditated killing in an area known for its sometimes-seamy club scene.

Kaufman has denied the allegations, saying in a jailhouse letter to the media that he’d never do something “so heinous and stupid.”

The extradition hearing is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday in federal court in Albany.

Kaufman is originally from Knoxville, Tenn.
