A man accused of shooting a person in Alaska will be in a Grand Forks jail for a while longer.

In Grand Forks County Court today James Mead requested an extradition hearing, rather than being sent back to Alaska today.

Mead was wanted for allegedly shooting a man in Alaska. He was captured in Canada shortly after the incident, but was mistakenly released into the United States. Authorities captured Mead near McVille last week.

He's accused of shooting a man in February 2009 in Delta Junction, a town about 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska.
