MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A transient accused of torturing and fatally shooting a man in Missoula is fighting extradition to Montana.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1mgmfjp ) 27-year-old Kevin Joseph Lino attended a hearing in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, on Tuesday and refused extradition to face charges in the July 30 death of 36-year-old Gilbert Barry. The Missoula County Sheriff’s Department mistakenly said Tuesday that Lino had waived extradition and was expected to appear in a Montana courtroom by Friday on charges of deliberate homicide and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Prosecutors say Barry was beaten and gang symbols were cut into his skin. Lino is accused of urinating on the man and shooting him in the head at an encampment under a Missoula bridge.

Barry’s body was then dumped into the Clark Fork River.
