Extradition Hearing for Three Teens Involved in Kidnapping of 86 Year Old Woman

Posted: Updated:

WOOD VILLAGE, OR- Thursday November 12, the three teenagers involved in the kidnapping of the 86-year-old Kennewick woman were in court. After talking with the Multnomah County District Attorney's office, the teenagers each had a extradition hearing, which allows for the case to be moved from one state, to another. They would be moving the case from Oregon, to Washington. 

As of Thursday afternoon, 16-year-old Dylan Martin and 15-year-old Billy Underwood signed the extradition waiver which means Benton County will now set up transportation arrangements to bring them back here as soon as possible. The 14-year-old girl has not yet waived but did appear in court and has been advised on the plans to move the case up to Benton County. 

The Benton County Deputy Prosecutor Terry Bloor told us, "we'll set some court dates probably 60 days in the future for a trial with Mr. Underwood our office will request the juvenile court that he be tried as an adult but that's discretionary with the juvenile court judge he'll probably appear in the Benton County juvenile Court and he'll probably will not be arraigned until which court will handle his case is resolved". 

The three teens are each all facing three charges, Kidnapping in the First Degree, Burglary in the First Degree and Theft of a Vehicle. Martin is being tried as an adult and therefore faces aggravated factors. The two boys will be back to Benton County and the charges in Oregon will be dropped and the case will be completely located out of Benton County.
