After being detained for almost two months, Milan Kovacevic was released from prison in his native Serbia as the investigation continues on charges that Kovacevic brutally beat fellow Binghamton University student Bryan Steinhauer of Brooklyn earlier this year. With still no plans to extradite Kovacevic despite pleas from Senators Schumer and Clinton to have him tried in the US, Serbian officials said that Kovacevic is not a flight risk while in his home country. The international affair initially broke out last spring when the former Binghamton basketball player fled the US following the incident with Steinhauer. “I am a citizen of Serbia and I will always respond to any calls by the authorities,” Kovacevic said yesterday. There has been no word on the progress of the investigation since Steinhauer and others were invited to testify via video link.
