(SOT: IRA EINHORN/U.S. FUGITIVE) -

"I don't think I would get justice in the United States, nor do I think I would get a trial. And that's what all of this battle has been about."
NARR: EUROPE'S TOP HUMAN RIGHTS COURT IS NOW DECIDING WHETHER TO SEND EINHORN BACK TO THE U.S. TO FACE MURDER CHARGES ... IN THE 19-77 DEATH OF HIS GIRLFRIEND, HOLLY MADDUX. HER BATTERED BODY WAS FOUND STUFFED IN A TRUNK ... INSIDE AN APARTMENT THE COUPLE SHARED IN PHILADELPHIA.
EINHORN FLED THE COUNTRY BEFORE HIS CASE EVER WENT TO TRIAL. HE WAS LATER CONVICTED IN ABSENTIA FOR THE CRIME.
BUT ONLY NOW HAS FRANCE AGREED TO TURN HIM OVER. THAT'S BECAUSE PENNSYLVANIA HAS PASSED A LAW GUARANTEEING EINHORN A RE-TRIAL, AND U.S. OFFICIALS HAVE PROMISED NOT TO EXECUTE HIM.
EINHORN SAYS IT'S JUST A PLOY TO GET HIM BACK IN THE STATES.

(SOT: EINHORN) -

"The law that was passed against me in the Pennsylvania legislature -- which we call the Einhorn law -- would never stand up in a court of law. It absolutely violates the separation of powers, which is the very basis of the U.S. Constitution."
NARR: AFTER FRANCE RECENTLY TURNED DOWN HIS EXTRADITION APPEAL--THE FORMER HIPPIE AND ANTI-WAR ACTIVIST CUT HIS THROAT IN PROTEST. HE WANTS AN INTERNATIONAL TRIAL..
HOWEVER THE MADDUX FAMILY SAYS EINHORN NEEDS TO FACE JUSTICE HERE.

(SOT: ELISABETH MADDUX HALL/SISTER OF HOLLY MADDUX)

"I'm very anxious to personally see him in a pair of handcuffs in an American courtroom."
NARR: THE EUROPEAN COURT IS EXPECTED TO MAKE A FINAL DECISON ON EINHORN'S FATE ... ON THURSDAY.
