Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Arizona man accused of a fatal shooting in Superior last week has waived extradition from Minnesota.
The office of the Northeastern Minnesota Chief Public Defender said today 41-year-old Juan Padilla will face charges in Superior in connection with the death of Terrance Luukkonen.
Padilla, a 20-year war veteran and former Arizona Police officer, is accused of shooting 46-year-old Luukkonen in the head last week in the parking lot of Genesis Attachments.
Police say Luukkoen's fiancé was the former girlfriend of Padilla.
Padilla could face a judge in Douglas County as soon as later this week.
