LONDON (AP) — Shrien Dewani, accused of arranging the murder of his bride on their honeymoon trip in 2010, faces extradition to South Africa within four weeks after his last appeal was rejected by a British court.

Dewani, whose case has drawn attention in both countries, and has been fighting extradition for years.

Monday's rebuff by London's High Court means that he must extradited within 28 days.

Vinod Hindocha, whose daughter Anni was killed, said after the ruling that the family now hoped "to get the answers that we have been seeking for the past three and a half years."

He said the drawn-out legal process, which has largely hinged on Shrien Dewani's mental health, had been torture for the family.
