OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A man suspected of killing three people and setting fire to a home in Colorado has waived extradition following his arrest in Oklahoma.

Harry Carl Mapps appeared before a district court judge on Monday in eastern Oklahoma’s Sequoyah County.

Assistant District Attorney Stacey Slaughter says the 59-year-old Mapps waived his extradition rights and agreed to return to Colorado.

It wasn’t immediately clear when he would be sent back, but local jail officials say he could be returned to Colorado at any time.

Slaughter says Mapps did not have an attorney.

Mapps was arrested Saturday night at a motel in Roland, Okla. He’s accused of killing three people whose bodies were found in a home in the small southern Colorado town of Rye after the house burned on Nov. 27.
