Mexico wants American extradited on charges in tourist death

Mexican prosecutors said Thursday they have filed charges against a U.S. woman on suspicion of killing another American seen being beaten in a viral video.

Prosecutors in the state of Baja California Sur did not name the suspect. But they said they have approached Mexican federal prosecutors and diplomats to try to get the woman extradited from the United States to face charges.

The Oct. 29 death of Shanquella Robinson of Charlotte at a resort development in the town of San Jose del Cabo shocked people in both countries.

After her death, video surfaced showing a woman attacking Robinson. While the original source of the video is unclear, it is believed it was taken during the Cabo trip.

The video raised suspicions that Robinson may have died at the hands of people she was traveling with.
