(AP) The extradition for a University of Pittsburgh medical researcher charged with fatally poisoning his neurologist wife will be held before a West Virginia judge next week.
Kristen Keller, the prosecuting attorney in Raleigh County, W.Va., says 64-year-old Dr. Robert Ferrante is due in court Monday afternoon.
Ferrante was arrested in West Virginia on Thursday after Pittsburgh police flew to Florida to arrest him, only to learn he had left. Authorities haven't said why Ferrante was in Florida.
His attorney says Ferrante was stopped while he was driving back to Pittsburgh to surrender to a charge that he poisoned 41-year-old Dr. Autumn Klein in April.
Ferrante has denied that through his defense attorney.
