A Kentucky man waives extradition to Wisconsin, where he’s accused in a thirty year-old double homicide. Edward Wayne Edwards said “I’ll go,” when a Jefferson County district judge asked if he wanted to fight extradition. The 76 year-old Edwards, who appeared in court in a wheelchair, with a cast on his left arm, is accused of killing 19 year-old high school sweethearts Tim Hack and Kelly Drew. The couple disappeared from a wedding reception August 9th, 1980. Two months later, searchers found their bodies a few miles from the reception hall.
Wisconsin investigators, armed with a DNA match, arrested Edwards on Thursday in Louisville. He faces two counts of first degree murder.
