Abstract: 

A member of Germany’s consul in Rio de Janeiro, Uwe Herbert Hahn, is accused of murdering his husband of 23 years, Walter Biot, at their home in Ipanema on August 5th.  Brazilian authorities initially detained Hahn on August 6th, but a state court ordered his release on August 23rd.  Soon after, Hahn took a flight back to Germany and Brazilian authorities are now requesting his return to face trial.
