A Utah private investigator was extradited to Glendale last week to face charges that he murdered a Glendale businessman in January.
Police said the man, Robert N. Goode, 26, is a suspect in the murder-for-hire of Frank Fitzpatrick, owner of Glendale Phone Mart. Fitzpatrick, 47, was shot five times Jan. 13 in the parking lot behind his business at 215 N. Central Ave.
Goode, of Oram, Utah, originally fought extradition but later agreed to come to California, authorities said. He is being held at County Jail and will be arraigned Sept. 18.
Police would not comment on who might have hired someone to kill Fitzpatrick or what the motive might have been.
