LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A second suspect in a multistate crime spree will be transferred from West Virginia to North Carolina to face murder charges.

Media outlets report that 21-year-old Eric Alexander Campbell of Alvin, Texas, waived extradition Friday in Greenbrier County Circuit Court.

Campbell is charged in Granville County, North Carolina, with first-degree murder, burglary and other charges. Campbell and his father, 54-year-old Edward Watson Campbell of Alvin, Texas, are accused of killing a couple Jan. 1 near Oxford, North Carolina, setting fire to their house and stealing their vehicle.

The elder Campbell waived extradition last month.

The Campbells also were charged in West Virginia stemming from a shootout with Lewisburg police. Greenbrier County prosecutor Patrick Via says these charges won’t be pursued for now.
