The U.S. attorney’s office said Wednesday, June 14, 2021 that it will seek to extradite Kallmes lawyer, Derek Kallemer, to Canada to face charges of manslaughter and other charges related to the death of his client.
A spokeswoman for the office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Kallmers lawyers did not return messages left for them on Tuesday.
In a statement posted on his website on June 15, 2021, Kallmeyers attorney, Derek Kaalmer said: “I am deeply saddened by the loss of my client, Derek.
He was a brilliant, compassionate, hardworking, and caring lawyer who will be sorely missed by the Kallemers family.
I will never forget his gentle manner, his warmth, and his love of life.
He will be greatly missed by all of us.”

Kollmers death came as part of a series of police investigations that resulted in the conviction of several officers involved in the fatal shooting.
Prosecutors say the fatal encounter happened as Kollmeier was sitting in his vehicle in an alley, near his girlfriend’s house, with his girlfriend and a third man.
They say the pair was on the front porch, with Kollmeyer’s partner inside the car.
Investigators say Kollmeers girlfriend was able to get out of the car and take cover behind her car, but Koll’s partner opened fire, fatally shooting Koll.
He died a few hours later.
Prosecutors in Canada allege the incident occurred because Kollmans partner was a known criminal who had been charged in a violent crime.
Prosecutors allege that Kollmar’s partner told investigators Koll was a “gangster,” and that Kallemmers “personal life was in turmoil.”
The indictment said the relationship “became more volatile and volatile as the weeks passed.”
The charges against the former colleague were dismissed in November, 2019.
(Associated Press/Reuters) In a brief statement Tuesday, Kallemeier’s lawyer said his client was “deeply saddened” by the death.
“I have no further comment,” he said.
The indictment against Kallemers partner is not related to a case Kallembers attorney is facing in the U.K. The prosecutor said he would file a statement of claim in the matter.
A federal judge in the southern Ontario city of Kingston has ordered a preliminary hearing on the charges against his former colleague.
It was not immediately clear what would happen next in the case.
