CASPER, Wyo. — A Casper man and woman who fled to Colorado after allegedly killing the woman's mother will not contest their extradition to Wyoming and will return to Natrona County in the coming weeks.
Anthony Rodriguez and Allison Solis, both 31, were in court in Colorado on Wednesday afternoon, where they didn't fight authorities' effort to have the pair brought back to Casper. Natrona County District Attorney Dan Itzen confirmed the court appearance and the outcome in an interview Wednesday.
Rodriguez is accused of stabbing Solis' mother, Mary Margaret Fogle, on Nov. 18 in Fogle's home near Wyoming Medical Center. The two allegedly then packed up Fogle's car, took her dog and her purse, and headed to Colorado.
According to court documents, they then turned themselves in to El Paso County authorities near Colorado Springs, hours after killing Fogle and before Casper police knew the woman was dead. They've been held in Colorado since.
Itzen said the couple had 10 business days to contest their extradition to Wyoming, and now that the pair has waived that right, authorities have 10 more business days to transport them back to Casper.
Rodriguez is charged with second-degree murder, while Solis faces a charge of accessory after the fact.
Fogle was last seen alive by her hairdresser on the morning of Nov. 18. The hairdresser told police that Fogle had planned to confront Rodriguez and Solis because of their lack of employment.
A spokeswoman for Colorado Springs' prosecutors office did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
