Sue Marcum, an accounting professor at American University, was found dead in her home in October.

A teenager from D.C., who police call a potential suspect in the slaying of an American University professor, is being extradited to Montgomery County, Md.

Deandrew Hamlin, 18, is charged with being a fugitive from justice. He was taken into custody after police say he crashed an SUV missing from Professor Sue Marcum's home.

Marcum was found dead in her Bethesda home in October. The medical examiner ruled her death a homicide and determined that the cause of her death was asphyxia and blunt force trauma.

Police say a search of Hamlin's home on a warrant related to the slaying turned up items of evidentiary value. But he has not been charged in the slaying.
