MIAMI (AP) - Anti-virus software founder John McAfee is holed up in Miami after weeks of evading Belizean authorities who want to question him in a homicide.

Shortly after McAfee arrived Wednesday evening on a flight from Guatemala, he announced on his website that he had alighted at a hotel in the city's swank South Beach neighborhood.

McAfee was deported from the Central American country after sneaking in illegally. He crossed the border from Belize, where police want to question him in connection with the death of a U.S. expatriate who lived near him on an island off Belize's coast.

McAfee says he did not kill the neighbor and feared his own life would be in danger if he turned himself in to Belizean authorities. He has not been charged with a crime.
