Murder suspect waives extradition

Published 2:47pm Tuesday, July 2, 2013

EATON — The Kitts Hill man accused in the murder of a Kentucky woman is expected to be back in Greenup County, Ky., by the end of the week.

Arthur Quigley, 30, who was arrested by Preble County deputies over the weekend, has waived extradition, according to Preble County Sheriff Mike Simpson.

“Mr. Quigley waived his hearing and has signed extradition paperwork to go back to Kentucky,” Simpson said in an email. “Kentucky has been advised that he is ready for pick up.”

Quigley is a suspect in the murder of Mary Dixon, 40, of South Shore, whose body was found behind Hobby Lobby in Russell, Ky., on Saturday. Dixon, who worked at the Subway restaurant nearby with Quigley, was reported missing on Wednesday.

“On Saturday (Russell police) contacted our office that the suspect was in our county,” Simpson said. “He was located at Eldorado at a friend’s residence. He was taken into custody without incidence and brought here and interviewed by Russell detectives.”

A spokesman for the Russell Police Department said Greenup County deputies will bring Quigley back to Kentucky where he will be lodged in the county jail.

His first appearance in Greenup courts will depend on the day he returns. If court is in session that day, he will face arraignment then, the spokesman said.
