TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A murder case against a man charged in last year's strangling of his wife in Ohio has been stalled over his extradition from his native Canada.
The suspect, 30-year-old Kyle Sheppard, remains in jail in Quebec, where he surrendered days after the death of his 29-year-old wife, Katie Sheppard, in Toledo.
She was found on the front porch of the couple's home, wrapped in a blanket, with a belt around her neck.
The (Toledo) Blade (bit.ly/1e30Epd) says the standoff has frustrated prosecutors who cannot proceed with the case until Sheppard is sent back to the United States.
Sheppard has challenged his extradition to face prosecution in Lucas County Common Pleas Court on a murder charge.
