A Charleston, West Virginia Court Judge will hear arguments Wednesday before deciding if a suspect in a double homicide case in Crawford County will be returned to Pennsylvania.

Jack Turner is wanted for questioning in the Crawford County murders of 49-year-old Shannon Whitman and her 10-year-old son.

Turner was apprehended at a Greyhound Bus Station in Charleston, West Virginia.

An extradition hearing was scheduled for Monday, but was postponed until Wednesday after the Judge fell ill.

Turner is also a person of interest in a robbery at a Millcreek Convenience Store.
