Man Accused in 1972 Ill. Killing OKs Extradition
Sixty-two-year-old Gary Warwick waived extradition during a hearing Monday in Indiana's Porter County, where he was arrested last Thursday.
It's unclear how quickly he will be escorted to Illinois to face the St. Clair County murder charge related to the 1972 death of 1-year-old Joseph Henry Abernathy III.
Authorities allege Warwick was dating the child's mother but wasn't the child's father.
Warwick was charged in 1973 in the baby's death, but the case was later dismissed without explanation. Investigators haven't revealed what led to the new charges.
It's unclear if Warwick has an attorney.
He's jailed on $5 million bond.
