Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn waived an extradition hearing Wednesday in federal court in Miami. 6NewsLawrence reports she was being placed in Florida state custody awaiting a state court hearing.

McLinn is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 52-year-old Harold Sasko, who owned pizza restaurants in Lawrence and Topeka. McLinn was an employee, and Sasko’s relatives have said he let her move into his home while she was having personal problems.

McLinn was reported missing around the time Sasko was found dead Jan. 17. Douglas County authorities allege Sasko was killed with an “edged instrument” after being subdued.
