Javaris Crittenton waived his right to an extradition hearing and a judge on Wednesday ordered him to be moved to Atlanta, where he faces a murder charge in a drive-by shooting.
In a downtown Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday, Crittenton acknowledged that he faces a murder charge in Atlanta and agreed to return there immediately. The basketball player was arrested Monday night at Orange County's John Wayne Airport as he boarded a plane bound for Atlanta.
He will remain jailed without bail until he is transferred to Atlanta. Crittenton, 23, of Fayetteville, Ga., is suspected of shooting Jullian Jones, a mother of four, on Aug. 19.
Police have said Crittenton was trying to shoot someone he believed stole jewelry from him in April. Jones was hit by shots fired from a sport utility vehicle and was pronounced dead at a hospital, said FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett.
