Suspect in fatal kidnapping appears in court, extradited
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A suspect in the fatal kidnapping of a Massachusetts woman whose body was found in the trunk of a car stopped by Delaware authorities has been extradited.
Appearing Monday before a federal magistrate in Delaware, 32-year-old Louis D. Coleman III of Providence, Rhode Island, waived his right to a hearing and did not contest a prosecution request that he be detained pending removal to Massachusetts.
A spokeswoman for the Delaware Department of Correction later confirmed that Coleman had been extradited.
Coleman is a suspect in the death of 23-year-old Jassy Correia, who was last seen alive early on the morning of Feb. 24 leaving a Boston nightclub where she had celebrated her birthday.
Correia’s body was found Thursday after Delaware police officers stopped a vehicle being driven by Coleman.
