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.
