SAN DIEGO (AP) - A Southern California man suspected of killing and dismembering a man in Hawaii is fighting extradition.
U-T San Diego said the attorney for Bryan Suitt made that announcement during a Wednesday hearing in San Diego.
A Hawaii grand jury indicted the 46-year-old last month for second-degree murder. The U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force arrested him Monday at his mother's home in Coronado. He remains jailed.
Hawaii authorities believe that Suitt killed 34-year-old Alex Gonzales and threw his dismembered corpse in an Oahu ravine. A couple looking for recyclables found the decomposing body parts in September.
Authorities haven't revealed a motive for the killing.
