Federal investigators said Levene made an appointment to buy $300,000 in diamonds but instead shot Zeevi and his associate before running off with the jewels.
Ronen Konfino, an executive at a New York diamond business, survived the attack.
Prosecutors said a few days after the fatal shooting, Levene flew to Amsterdam and was then tracked down in Spain.
