VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - The boyfriend of a suburban Portland, Oregon, woman who was fatally stabbed is contesting his extradition from Washington state.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/8WiOzF) that 24-year-old Eric Christopher Petersen of Hillsboro, Oregon, appeared Tuesday in Clark County District Court in Vancouver. Judge Sonya Langsdorf ordered that he be held without bail during extradition proceedings.

Hillsboro police have identified Petersen as a person of interest in Friday’s death of 24-year-old Aimie Zdrantan, who was found dead in her apartment. He was arrested late Saturday near La Center, Washington, on a probation violation warrant.

Authorities have asked that he be returned to Oregon.
