Sacramento authorities received authorization Thursday to extradite a Murray man to California, where he is wanted for the 1987 murder of beauty queen Karen Grace Winslett, 21.
Paul Mack, 39, waived extradition during an arraignment before 5th Circuit Judge Paul Grant. He did not enter a plea on the felony fugitive charges for which he was jailed Tuesday evening after being arrested near his home by Murray and Salt Lake police.In addition to the Sacramento murder charge, Mack is wanted for questioning in the 1981 killing of Annette Huddle, 19, who was Mack's former secretary at an Ohio country club. Marion County, Ohio, Sheriff John Butterworth said he will send officers to Sacramento to question Mack.
A court official told Grant that Sacramento authorities had already arranged to transport Mack to their city later Thursday.
Mack had been living in Murray under the assumed name Sean Paul Lanier. Authorities associated his real identity with the assumed name after an Ohio woman viewed a story about the Winslett murder case on a syndicated television program.
