KENNER, LA (WLOX) - The man accused of murdering and dismembering 22-year-old Jaren Lockhart will be back in Louisiana sometime next week.
According to Kenner, LA, Police Chief Michael J. Glaser, Terry Speaks, 41, signed a waiver of extradition Wednesday and will be brought back to Jefferson Parish next week.
Speaks and co-defendant Margaret Sanchez, 30, were indicted in August on charges of second degree murder and obstruction of justice in the 2012 death of Lockhart.
Glaser said Speaks was transferred from a federal lockup in New York, where he was serving time for failure to register as a sex offender, to a New York county jail on Tuesday.
Speaks and Sanchez are accused of stabbing Lockhart to death and then dumping her remains in a body of water in Mississippi. Lockhart's remains later washed ashore in Hancock County.
Authorities say Bourbon Street security footage shows Speaks and Sanchez were the last people to be seen with Lockhart while she was still alive.
