SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah authorities say a man accused of killing a train worker has been transported to Wyoming where the alleged crime occurred.
Utah Department of Corrections spokeswoman Maria Peterson says that Wyoming authorities picked up Dereck James “DJ” Harrison on Tuesday.
Harrison was sentenced to at least 30 years in a Utah prison last year after pleading guilty to tying up a woman and her four daughters in a basement.
Prosecutors say after that, he and his father snatched a train worker while on the run from police and killed him in Wyoming.
Harrison had agreed to waive extradition to face murder charges that could carry the death penalty in Wyoming.
His father, Flint Harrison, also was charged in both cases but killed himself in jail in July.
