FLORENCE, Ariz. -- A man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting last year in San Tan Valley has been extradited to Arizona from Colorado.

Pinal County Sheriff's officials said Thursday that 28-year-old Cory Deandre Allen was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Allen was taken into custody on March 8 by the U.S. Marshals Service in Leadville, Colo.

Authorities say Allen was identified as a suspect in the shooting death of Linda Perelli-Brown at her San Tan Valley home last November.

A warrant was issued for Allen's arrest and he was found in Colorado after authorities tracked him for three months.
