The family of American national Kevin Dahlgren, who is suspected of murdering four relatives in the Czech Republic, has hired top US lawyer Theodore Simon to represent their son. Mr Simon was one of the lawyers instrumental in securing freedom for American student Amanda Knox and has handled celebrity cases. Last week, Kevin Dahlgren avoided arrest in the Czech Republic after the murders were discovered but was detained upon arrival back in the US. His lawyer has said a bail decision should be taken next week. The Czech Republic is preparing an extradition request, although the United States rarely extradites its citizens.
