LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A man who is charged in the deaths of his two sons will soon be returned to Kansas from Oklahoma where he was arrested with his two daughters after the killings.

KMBC-TV reports that 40-year-old Donny Jackson Jr. signed a written extradition waiver this week. That will allow him to be returned to Leavenworth County, Kansas, where he was charged Tuesday with capital murder and two alternative counts of first-degree murder.

Officials with the Leavenworth County Attorney’s Office said they’ve received that notification, but have no timetable for Jackson’s return to the state.

Law enforcement officers went to the family home Oct. 24 in Leavenworth after one of the siblings didn’t show up for a soccer game. The bodies of 14-year-old Logan Jackson and 12-year-old Austin Jackson were found and their two younger sisters, 3-year-old Aven Jackson and 7-year-old Nora Jackson, were missing.

After an Amber Alert was issued, Jackson was arrested that night near Erick, Oklahoma, and the girls were returned to their family.
