HAMILTON - A Victor man who is accused of a 1996 Washington murder will be extradited to Seattle to face charges.
Ravalli County prosecutors tell us they received a Governor's Warrant for Clifford Reed. Reed has been fighting extradition back to King County where he's expected to be charged with the death of his friend, Sandi Johnson, 28.
Investigators say Johnson disappeared in April of 1996 and her skeletal remains were found in 2004 by a road crew working along a Washington State highway.
Reed was arrested for Johnson's disappearance in 1997 but was never charged because, at the time, detectives hadn't recovered the body.
He was arrested on Dec. 3 in Ravalli County.
