COLUMBIA — A suspect in the April murder of Brian Daniels was extradited Monday morning to Boone County Jail. Bail is set at $1 million.
Casey Lewis, 24, of Stonewall, Okla., was arrested last month in Oklahoma on a first-degree murder charge. Columbia and Boone County police worked together to transfer him from Coal County Jail in Coalgate, Okla.
"Our detectives were already in Oklahoma, so they did the transfer yesterday," Columbia Police Department public information officer Latisha Stroer said.
A first court date for Lewis has not yet been set, Cpl. George Gresham of the Boone County Sheriff's Department said.
Lewis was the fourth person charged in connection with the Daniels case, the second charged with murder. James Thompson was charged with first-degree murder in April.
Two others, Glenn Anderson and Christopher Hurt, were arrested in April for hindering the prosecution of a felony in the investigation of Daniels' killing.
Brian Daniels, 46, was found dead in his south Columbia home in April.
