SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 21-year-old man suspected of murder who led authorities on a five-day multistate manhunt that ended on the Wyoming-Nebraska border will be headed back to South Dakota after waiving his right to an extradition hearing.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/23WaAWT ) that Jared Jerome Stone’s criminal case in Wyoming has been resolved after he pleaded no contest to driving while impaired and eluding. The remaining Wyoming charges were dismissed by prosecutors.

Stone is accused of killing 28-year-old Baptiste White Eyes on April 22 outside of a Sioux Falls casino. He was arrested on April 27 following the high-speed chase.

Minnehaha County State’s Attorney Aaron McGowan says he expects Stone to be returned to South Dakota within a week or so. A court date has not yet been set.
