A Scottsville man accused of a murder in Pakistan will not be extradited.
Shaukat Hayat who goes by the name Brian Shaw was set free Thursday.
A federal court judge found there was no probable cause to show Shaw committed murder in his native Pakistan in 2003.
The defense produced Shaw’s passport as evidence he was not in Pakistan at the time of the murder.
Shaw could face another extradition hearing, but Thursday’s ruling can not be appealed.
