DENVER (CBS4) – The president of Argentina is blocking a court order to send a Denver murder suspect back to Colorado.

Kurt Sonnenfeld is accused of killing his wife at their Denver home back in 2002. He claims he’s being framed because of video he took at Ground Zero after Sept. 11.

Sonnenfeld fled to Argentina. Then-governor Bill Owens agreed to waive the death penalty if Sonnenfeld returned for trial.

“Kurt Sonnenfeld is definitely gaming the system, though someday, hopefully, that game may run out,” Owens said.
