COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A man wanted in connection with the death of a 2-year-old girl in Spokane last week refused to waive extradition to Spokane County on a second-degree murder charge.

Jason J. Obermiller appeared before a judge in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on Wednesday afternoon.

The 32-year-old Obermiller was arrested Tuesday at a cabin on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The Spokesman-Review says Obermiller faces the murder charge for the death of Adalynn Hoyt, who died of a single blow to the stomach. He was living with the girl’s mother.

Idaho First District Magistrate Judge Timothy Van Valin appointed Obermiller a public defender Wednesday and set a preliminary hearing date of Sept. 30.

Obermiller is in the Kootenai County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
