PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (WPXI) – A Pennsyvlania doctor accused of poisoning his wife will be brought back to Pittsburgh Tuesday to face a murder charge.
Dr. Robert Ferrante was arrested during a traffic stop in Beckley, West Virginia last week and did not fight extradition back to Pennsylvania.
Investigators said Ferrante spiked his wife’s creatine with cyanide in April. Dr. Autumn Klein died on April 20.
During his extradition hearing Monday in Beckley, Ferrante said few words and showed no emotion.
Allegheny County District Attorney’s spokesman Mike Manko says Ferrante should be at the county jail by noon and will be arraigned in a video conference by a county judge at 2 p.m.
