SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A man accused of seriously wounding a northern Idaho church pastor has arrived at the Kootenai County Jail after being extradited from Washington, D.C.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://bit.ly/1T4oumU ) that 30-year-old Kyle Odom arrived in Coeur d’Alene on Friday after the U.S. Marshals Service spent the past month shuttling him from the East Coast.

Authorities say Odom shot pastor Tim Remington eight times outside The Altar Church in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on March 6, then flew to Washington, where he was arrested while throwing items onto the White House lawn. Remington survived the attack.

Attorneys with the Public Defender’s Office, which has been assigned to represent Odom, have expressed frustration with how long it took to get Odom back to Idaho as they were unable to prepare for court.
