Extradition Delayed for Iowa City Woman Accused in Colorado Murder

By Hayley Bruce, Reporter

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — A hearing to discuss the extradition of an Iowa City woman suspected of a homicide in Colorado has been delayed, pending a governor's warrant.

Bionca Rogers, 21, turned herself into Cedar Rapids police last month after police in Colorado Springs issued a warrant for her arrest in connection with a suspected homicide of a Colorado Springs man.

The 61-year-old man, Grant Frazier, went missing Feb. 16 and was found dead in a car in Newton, Iowa on Feb. 25.

Rogers refused extradition back to Colorado late last month, prompting First Assistant Linn County Attorney Nick Maybanks to alert Colorado authorities to issue a governor's warrant to bring her back to Colorado.

A hearing to discuss Rogers' extradition Friday morning was pushed back to May 23 because a governor's warrant from Colorado had not yet been received.

Rogers will be held without bond until the governor's warrant is granted or the next hearing.
