Andrew Williams, 40, of 1809 Huff in Wichita Falls, Texas, stated his intention earlier this week during his arraignment in Wichita Falls. Williams is in the Wichita County Jail charged with murder in the first degree. He was arrested around 2 p.m. Friday at his residence and jailed by Wichita Falls police, who had been notified of a warrant for his arrest issued in Jackson County District Court.
Wilson, 58, was found dead with multiple stab wounds the morning of Jan. 18 in room 105 of the Budget Inn, 5101/2 N. Main St., by housekeeper Bina Patel. He had been stabbed 76 times.
According to Altus Police Detective Mike Turner, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office has notified the District Attorney's Office here of Williams' move to fight extradition.
The DA's office will now file a governor's warrant for Williams' extradition to be forwarded to Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry for his signature. The warrant will then be sent to Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his approval -- a process that, according to Jackson County Sheriff Morris Roberts, is most always granted and takes about 30 days.
The sheriff's office will then bring Williams back to Jackson County, Roberts said.
