    A fugitive american arrested in Quebec has finally agreed to be extradited to the United States, where he will be tried for having killed her Yorkshire Terrier and beat his wife during a fight in the family.

    “I waive [the hearing] on extradition, I was informed that I will be transferred without delay to the United States,” said Wesley Teixeira-Desouza at the palais de justice of Montreal.

    The American 39-year-old was wanted in Connecticut, where he faces a series of charges for events that would have occurred in may last.

    Excess of rage

    The day of the drama, Teixeira-Desouza had returned home drunk, late at night, indicates to court filings.

    “She (his wife) said he would sleep on the couch, which angered [the accused] “, one can read in the documents of the american justice.

    An argument would have erupted, and their little dog would have started barking. Mad with rage, Teixeira-Desouza would have caught it to throw it on the floor.

    “It has again seized the dog to swing against an oven, and then caught a third time to crush it against the door of a room,” says the document.

    Teixeira-Desouza would have then threatened to kill his wife in the grabbing by the throat. It is their 12 year old son, a witness to the horror scene, who saved his mother by hitting his father with a stick.


    When the police arrived at the family’s residence, the U.s. had already fled the scene after throwing the dead dog in the garbage.

    He was arrested and charged with strangulation, threats, mischief and animal cruelty.

    The accused had, however, been released on bail, on condition not to communicate with victims, what he would have done just after his release from preventive detention.

    And instead of quietly wait for his trial, Teixeira-Desouza has fled to Canada. He has crossed the frontier illegally before being arrested. Placed in detention, he attempted in vain to be returned in the Brazil natal.

    That would have enabled him to make false bond to the american justice, because even if Brazil and the United States have an extradition agreement, the countries of Latin america not to withdraw its nationals.

    “It is therefore plausible to believe that the United States would lose track of the person concerned, if returned to Brazil “, could we read in the extradition case.
