FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Police say a Missouri man charged in the 1996 slaying of a 15-year-old Maryland girl has waived extradition and will return to face trial in Frederick.

Frederick Police Lt. Clark Pennington said Wednesday his department plans to bring 52-year-old Lloyd Harris back to Maryland by mid-February. He’s being held in the Clay County jail in Liberty, Missouri.

Local police and FBI agents arrested Harris last week in Kansas City, Missouri. He’s charged with first-degree murder, first-degree rape and third-degree sex offense in the strangulation death of Stacey Lynn Hoffmaster.

Hoffmaster’s body was found in December 1996 under a blanket in a wooded area of Frederick where police say Harris had been living. She had been missing nearly three months.

Harris has no defense attorney listed in online court records.
