Missouri man ordered extradited to Florida on murder charge
HILLSBORO (AP) - One of two Missouri men accused of killing a Florida doctor will be returned to Florida to face prosecution.
A judge in Missouri's Jefferson County south of St. Louis on Wednesday ordered 47-year-old Curtis Wayne Wright of Hillsboro to be extradited.
Wright and 25-year-old Jimmy Ray Rodgers of Cadet, Missouri, are charged with second-degree murder in the June killing of Teresa Sievers. She was a 46-year-old holistic physician and mother of two whose body was found in her Bonita Springs, Florida, home.
Wright grew up with Sievers' husband near St. Louis. Sievers' husband is not charged in his wife's death.
Rodgers was sentenced recently to six months in prison for violating probation in a 2011 case in which he pleaded guilty to being a felon illegally possessing a firearm.
