Killer’s boyfriend fighting extradition to Spokane County
The boyfriend of convicted killer Shellye L. Stark, accused of helping her with a plan to kill her husband, will remain in California for at least a month as he fights extradition to Spokane County.
Brian L. Moore, who turned 43 last week, was due in Orange County Superior Court this morning, but that hearing was continued until June 11, court records show.
Spokane police must get a governor’s warrant if an inmate refuses to waive extradition. The process can take 90 days.
Moore, a paralegal, is being held without bond at the Central Men’s Jail in Santa Ana, Calif., after being arrested April 27 by Spokane police, who traveled to Anaheim and raided a warehouse he was renting there.
Moore, who met Stark when she was working as an online prostitute named Nikita Jennifer, is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in Spokane County Superior Court for the Dec. 9, 2007, shooting of Dale Robert Stark in his Spokane home. His bail is set at $1.5 million here.
A jury rejected Stark’s self defense claim March 18 after a two-week trial, and she was sentenced to 50 years in prison April 30.
