Murder suspect extradited back to Charleston

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office says the murder suspect who was captured outside Atlanta in October after wriggling out of his electronic monitoring bracelet is back in the Al Cannon Detention Center.

Major Jim Brady said 29-year-old Travaris Walker was extradited from Riverdale, Georgia on Wednesday around 6 p.m. His bond has been revoked, so he will stay in jail until his trial.

Walker is charged in connection with the December 2011 "execution-style" murder of 25-year-old Marquis Richardson.

Sheriff's office investigators said Richardson was murdered because he failed to return property that belonged to Walker. Investigators would not say what that property was.

Detectives said Richardson was abducted at gunpoint from Norman Street on Dec. 19, 2011, and forced into a vehicle before he was driven to Lincolnville Road, where he was shot in the head by Walker.

Richardson's body was found the next day.

Three others are charged in connection with the crime: 29-year-old Fredrick Sanders, 23-year-old Latasha McCall, and 22-year-old King Wilson.

They are charged with kidnapping and accessory before and after the fact of murder.
