A man accused in the murder of a Red Bluff police officer plans to fight extradition from New Hampshire. A judge in Concord, New Hampshire, today gave Andrew McCrae until January 10th to file a petition and ordered him to continue being held without bail.
The Olympia, Washington, man is accused of gunning down Officer David Mobilio November 19th as Mobilio refueled his patrol car at an isolated gas station. McCrae was arrested in a Concord hotel a week later. Attorney Mark Sisti declined to explain his plans for McCrae´s petition. He implied it would be based on the possibility McCrae could face the death penalty.
Concord city prosecutor Scott Murray said he wasn´t surprised by the petition. He added that he´s never seen one succeed in 20 years of practice. McCrae allegedly posted confessions on the internet, claiming he killed Mobilio to make a statement about police brutality and corporate irresponsibility.
