The suspect in a pair of shooting deaths in Michigan, who was arrested in Las Vegas last week, waived extradition during a hearing Tuesday morning.
Michael Duane Lawrence, 24, was arrested Friday by an FBI Fugitive Task Force, according to the bureau.
Police in Saginaw, MI, said Lawrence is wanted in the shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend, Angelica Olivarez, and 6-year-old Layla Jones. They said the child was shot in a drive-by shooting in August 2012. They said Olivarez was killed in April.
At Tuesday's hearing, Lawrence waived extradition proceedings, which means he will be sent back to Michigan to face the charges once local officials determine he is not wanted elsewhere.
