Summerfield extradited, will return to Dare County
During a brief hearing Friday in Medina County Common Pleas Court before Judge James L. Kimbler, the 27-year-old waived his right to challenge extradition.
Summerfield was captured by U.S. Marshals on Wednesday at a motel in Wadsworth, Ohio.
Summerfield entered the courthouse wearing a red jumpsuit and handcuffs, and sat stoically during the hearing, which lasted only a few moments.
When asked by Judge Kimbler if he understood that by waving the extradition hearing he would be returned to North Carolina, Summerfield answered “Yes, I do.”
Several other questions from the judge were answered with a simple “yes” or “no”.
Summerfield then signed the order waiving the extradition hearing, and was escorted out of the courtroom.
He did not acknowledge anyone seated in the gallery.
Summerfield allegedly strangled and stabbed Lynn Jackenheimer, whose body was found July 14 at the end of a cul-de-sac in Frisco.
“(He) will be returned to Dare County by Dare Sheriff’s Deputies late tonight or early tomorrow morning,” Dare County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Steve Hoggard said in a statement. “The exact time and location of their return is not being released due to security considerations.”
“Evidence regarding the murder charge will be presented at a session of the Dare County Grand Jury on September 10,” Hoggard said. “The scheduling of the actual trial may take a considerable amount of time.”
