Murder suspect held in PH fighting extradition to U.S.

BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — A Kentucky man in Philippine custody is challenging extradition to the U.S. where he’s being charged with complicity to murder.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports 39-year-old Antonio Marsonel Wilson is under indictment on several charges connected to the February death of Smajo Miropija.


Murder suspect Antonio Marsonel Wilson is fighting extradition to the U.S.

Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron said at a pretrial conference Monday that Wilson is apparently challenging extradition.

Wilson fled to the Philippines during the investigation into 49-year-old Miropija’s death. Philippine police arrested Wilson in March, five days after local authorities obtained an arrest warrant.


The Bowling Green Police Department says Miropija’s death was a murder-for-hire and that Wilson paid 46-year-old Jeffery Smith to kill his girlfriend’s father.

Smith is being charged with murder.

Warren Circuit Judge John Grise reset hearings for Wilson and Smith for Aug. 5.
