Las Vegas man to fight extradition in 1964 slaying

A lawyer says a 77-year-old retired postal worker will fight his transfer from Las Vegas to Virginia to face a murder charge in the slaying of his then-wife 45 years ago.

The move could postpone extradition for Donald James Long for a month or more. A Clark County District Court hearing was postponed until Thursday.

Outside court, attorney Michael Pariente called Long "totally innocent" of the December 1964 strangulation of Naomi Fulcher Long, 30 in Hopewell, Va.

Long was arrested Friday by U.S. marshals in Las Vegas and is being held at the Clark County jail. Pariente says Long has lived in Las Vegas for 25 years.
