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.
