HOUSTON—A woman from a polygamist family wanted in a 1988 quadruple slaying in Texas faces a detention hearing Wednesday after her extradition from Honduras.
Federal authorities say Jacqueline Tarsa LeBaron today went before a magistrate in Houston. LeBaron said she's a Mexican citizen and claims she's been denied due process.
A tip led to LeBaron's arrest yesterday in Moroceli, Honduras, and her extradition to Houston.
Her father, polygamist sect leader Ervil LeBaron, died in 1981 in a Utah prison.
Jacqueline LeBaron is accused in the shooting deaths of three former sect members and the 8-year-old daughter of one of the men. The killings happened in Houston and Irving.
She's charged with conspiracy to commit murder, murder, conspiracy to tamper with a witness, tampering with a witness, use of a firearm during a crime of violence, conspiracy to obstruct religious beliefs, obstruction of religious beliefs and racketeering conspiracy.
