A judge says Indiana authorities have 90 days to obtain an extradition warrant and retrieve a 57-year-old fugitive to face charges in the slaying of his fiancee.
Clark County District Court Judge Douglas Smith told Steven Farrell on Thursday that he’ll remain at the Clark County jail without bail pending a resolution of his extradition case.
Indiana state police say Farrell faces murder and other charges in the Nov. 27 shooting death of 40-year-old Christine Craig of West Lafayette, Ind.
A friend says Craig and Farrell had planned to be married that day.
Authorities say Craig’s 16-year-old daughter witnessed the slaying in a car on a rural road near Otterbein, Ind.
Farrell was arrested Dec. 9 in Mesquite.
