Extradition of suspect from native Canada slows northwest Ohio case in wife's strangling

A murder case against a man charged in last year's strangling of his wife in Ohio has been stalled over his extradition from his native Canada.
She was found on the front porch of the couple's home, wrapped in a blanket, with a belt around her neck.
The Blade (bit.ly/1e30Epd) says the standoff has frustrated prosecutors who cannot proceed with the case until Sheppard is sent back to the United States.
Sheppard has challenged his extradition to face prosecution in Lucas County Common Pleas Court on a murder charge.
