Canadian influencer 'will be extradited within WEEKS' after arrest in Hungary for murder

A glamorous influencer accused of murder is set to be extradited to her native Canada within weeks after she was arrested in Hungary following three months on the run. 

Yun 'Lucy' Lu Li, 25, and her boyfriend, Oliver Karafa, 28, were both apprehended in Budapest on Saturday, wanted on charges of murder over the fatal February shooting of Tyler Pratt, 38, in Ontario, Canada. 

The couple - dubbed the 'millennial Bonnie and Clyde' - were additionally wanted on charges of attempted murder, after they were also accused of trying to kill Pratt's 26-year-old girlfriend. She was pregnant at the time of the February shooting and lost her unborn baby in the gunfire.  

It's believed Li and Karafa both knew Pratt, with his alleged murder occurring during a 'business meeting'.  

The Toronto Sun reports that at a hearing in Hungary on Wednesday, Li 'consented to her extradition with the application of the principle of specialty, according to which... Canadian authorities may only prosecute her for the charges stated in the extradition request.' 

Li is reported to be from a wealthy family with ties to Canada's Liberal Party.  

Her boyfriend, Karafa, meanwhile, is a native of Slovakia and is will fight extradition back to Canada.   

Meanwhile, during the hearing, new details about the murder mystery emerged, with Karafa accused of firing the fatal bullet that led to Pratt's death.

On February 28, just after 7.15pm,  police in Hamilton, a city in Ontario, Canada, responded to a shooting that occurred in an industrial park in Stoney Creek. 

Pratt, a father-of-three, was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend was hospitalized with serious injuries. 

Investigators soon identified Karafa and Li as the people responsible for the shooting, although they would not say what led them to that conclusion. 

Police learned that the couple fled to Eastern Europe within 24 hours of the incident, traveling through several countries, including Karafa's native Slovakia and the Czech Republic, before arriving in Budapest, Hamilton Police Det.-Sgt. Jim Callender told CBC.ca. 

Hamilton Police Service recognized the efforts of the Hungarian Fugitive Active Search Team in making the arrests. 

Li's mother, Hong Wei 'Winnie' Liao, is president of the Toronto-based asset management firm Respon International Group with extensive political connections. 

She has been photographed shaking hands with Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and posing with Ontario Premier Doug Ford.

Li is one of a set of triplets. She and her sisters have built a following for themselves on social media by posing in matching dresses and skimpy swimsuits.   

'We are deeply shocked, disturbed and puzzled by Lucy's involvement in the unfortunate incident,' the family said in a statement to a Chinese news outlet, which was translated by The National Post.

In 2014, Karafa was found guilty of impaired driving causing death; driving while over legal limit of alcohol; criminal negligence cause death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle cause death, and was sentenced to five years in prison, reported CTV.

The conviction stemmed from an April 2012 crash, in which Karafa got behind the wheel drunk and was driving at twice the speed limit when he crashed his car, causing his passenger, 19-year-old David Chiang, to be ejected from the vehicle and smash head first into a pole. The victim died at the scene.
