PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A community college security guard charged with murder in Central Oregon has declined to waive extradition to Oregon.

KOIN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aycLzW ) that Edwin Lara, who worked at Central Oregon Community College in Bend, appeared in court Tuesday and has another court hearing later this month in Yreka, California, where he is a suspect in a shooting and carjacking.

Authorities say he committed those crimes after killing 23-year-old Kaylee Sawyer of Bend, Oregon.

Her body was dumped in a small canyon off a highway between the Central Oregon towns of Redmond and Sisters.

The 31-year-old has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, kidnapping and other charges in California, where he remains jailed without bail.
