Denise E. O'Donnell, the U.S. attorney in Buffalo, N.Y., said waiving the death penalty may be the only way to extradite Kopp.

An antiabortion activist charged with killing Dr. Barnett A. Slepian four years ago admitted the sniper slaying but said he only wanted to wound the obstetrician to vent his anger. "The truth is not that I regret shooting Dr. Slepian. I regret that he died," James C. Kopp said in a jailhouse interview published Wednesday in the Buffalo News. "I aimed at his shoulder. The bullet took a crazy ricochet, and that's what killed him."
