Hong Kong: A Chinese man arrested in Hong Kong in connection with the slaying of his teenage nephews in California has told a court he won't fight extradition to the United States.

Deyun Shi told a magistrate on Monday that he wanted to consent "as soon as possible" to extradition.

Acting on a request from U.S. officials, Hong Kong police arrested Shi after he arrived in the semiautonomous Chinese city by plane.

US investigators believe Shi killed the teens before fleeing because he was upset his wife wanted a divorce.

He declined the services of a duty lawyer and planned to represent himself.

Shi applied for bail, but it was refused and he was remanded into custody.

The case was adjourned until Feb. 11.
