BRUSSELS, Dec 6 (Expatica) - The wife of confessed serial killer Michel Fourniret was being extradited from Belgium to France on Tuesday.

Monique Olivier arrived by helicopter at about 8.50am on Tuesday at the police station of Heer-Agimont, located several hundred metres from the Belgian-French border.

The extradition proceedings were to be finalised at Heer-Agimont, near Hastière, later on Tuesday, newspaper 'De Standaard' reported.

Olivier is suspected of assisting various crimes committed by her husband, who stands accused of multiple murders of young women.

She will remain in remand custody at the Laon jail to await trial in France. Fourniret will remain for the time being on remand in Belgium.

Most of the nine murders Fourniret is accused of took place at the start of the 1990s in the north of France. The other murders occurred in Belgium.

The judiciary in the Belgian city of Named has thus agreed for the trial to be held in France.

Fourniret was arrested in Belgium in June 2003.
