Dominican court detains ex-wife of reputed drug kingpin on suspicion of money laundering

A Dominican court has jailed the ex-wife of a reputed Caribbean drug kingpin for at least three months.

Leavy Nin Batista has been detained on suspicion of laundering money for her former husband's alleged trafficking network. No charges have been filed, but the Dominican legal system allows for preventive detention.

Five Spanish agents escorted the 33-year-old Batista from Madrid to the Dominican capital over the weekend. She was jailed Monday.

Batista's ex-husband is Jose Figueroa Agosto, captured last year in Puerto Rico on suspicion of shipping Colombian cocaine to the U.S. mainland.

Batista allegedly fled to Europe in 2009 with a fraudulent passport.
