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

Montgomery County Police say a man investigated for his possible role in the slaying of American University professor Sue Ann Marcum has been extradited to Maryland.

Deandrew Hamlin, 18, was returned to Maryland from the District late last night. He is scheduled to appear in Rockville District Court this afternoon on charges of motor vehicle theft among other offenses.

Hamlin was arrested in Washington on Oct. 25, while driving Marcum's stolen Jeep, hours after her body was found in her home in Bethesda. Montgomery County police say Marcum was killed in the course of a burglary.

County police searched Hamlin's home in Northwest D.C. on Oct. 27 and police say they did not find evidence. No other warrants have been issued in connection to the homicide.
