JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- British businessman Shrien Dewani on Wednesday lost his bid to avoid extradition from Britain to South Africa to face murder charges in the slaying of his wife on their honeymoon in 2010. His lawyers immediately announced he would appeal Wednesday's decision by a British magistrate to allow Dewani's extradition . Dewani had so far avoided extradition due to severe depression and post-traumatic stress and is under treatment at a mental health facility in his hometown of Bristol.

British businessman Shrien Dewani has been extradited to South Africa to stand trial on murder charges in the death of his Swedish bride. His arraignment in a Western Cape High Court earlier Tuesday, where he was formally charged with the murder of his wife, Anni, could spell the start of a second emotionally wrought murder trial for South Africa, spellbound already by revelations in the case against Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius. The 28-year-old Anni and her husband were on a slum tourism trip through a Cape Town township during their 2010 honeymoon when they were carjacked at gunpoint.
