US anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee is in stable condition after complaining of heart trouble and is awaiting deportation to Belize for questioning over his neighbor's murder, an official said Friday.

McAfee received proper medical treatment after the apparent heart scare Thursday and was released after doctors determined he was suffering from anxiety and high blood pressure, said migration director Freddy Viana.

Viana said his department is waiting for a court to rule on last minute appeals by McAfee's lawyers to prevent his deportation to Belize. In the meantime, he is staying at a government hostel.

In Belize, McAfee's neighbor on the palm-fringed island of Ambergris Caye, was discovered dead on November 11. The 52-year-old Florida expat, Gregory Faull, was found by his housekeeper with a 9-mm bullet in his head, lying in a pool of his own blood.

Authorities in Belize want to question McAfee, although he has not been charged.

McAfee had slipped across the border into Guatemala over the weekend with his 20-year-old girlfriend to request asylum, but the petition was turned down.

McAfee, 67, insists he had nothing to do with the killing.
