HAMILTON, Ohio, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- A convicted killer suspected of strangling a woman in Pontiac, Mich., more than 40 years ago has been ordered returned to the state to stand trial.
An Ohio judge ordered the extradition of Nelson Ray George, 67, Monday, the Detroit Free Press reported. Officials said he would be in a Michigan jail by the end of the week.
George pleaded guilty to killing two women in Michigan and Ohio and spent a total of 22 years in prison. Since his release in 1992, he has been living in Ohio and working as a handyman.
In an affidavit filed with the Ohio Court of Common Pleas in Butler County, prosecutors said their evidence against him includes testimony from Eugene Weis, an armed robber who knew George in a Michigan prison in the 1970s. Weis claims George told him he had killed as many as six women, "maybe more."
George allegedly told him he "liked to see the shaking that occurred with their bodies" as they died. The women he admitted killing and his other alleged victims were strangled with their clothing.
He faces trial in Michigan on charges of killing Gwendolyn Perry, 36. She was strangled with her stockings in December 1968 and her body dumped in a field near Pontiac.
