KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The man accused of killing Kansas City, Kan. police detective Brad Lancaster has waived extradition to be prosecuted in Kansas.
Curtis Ayers was taken into custody by Jackson County, Mo. authorities after being released from the hospital Monday. He has been hospitalized since he was shot by Kansas City, Mo. police.
The Kansas City Star reported that Ayers was wearing Lancaster’s handcuffs when he was escorted from the hospital.
He is charged in Wyandotte County, Kan., with capital murder in Lancaster’s death. Ayers also faces charges in Jackson County, Mo., and Leavenworth County, Kan.
He signed the paperwork Tuesday morning to be extradited to Kansas, after spending less than a day in Jackson County jail. He is expected to be transported to Wyandotte County on Wednesday.
