BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - A man charged in the shooting death of an eastern Iowa man has been returned to the state for court proceedings.

The Hawk Eye in Burlington reports (https://bit.ly/2i7RD6w ) that 23-year-old Earl Riley Booth-Harris was charged in July with first-degree murder. He’s accused of killing Deonte “Tae” Carter in February 2015, but had been in Illinois.

Authorities say Carter was shot three times in front of several witnesses. They have not disclosed a motive, but the Hawk Eye says the theft of athletic shoes from Carter’s home helped ignite a feud between him and Booth-Harris. The newspaper says the pair may also have been involved in an argument over illegal drugs.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Booth-Harris.
