A Florida man facing accessory charges in connection with a fatal shooting Massachusetts has refused to waive extradition from South Carolina.
Michael Arthur Noguera, 47, of Lehigh Acres was ordered to be held without bail in South Carolina as the Bristol district attorney's office in Massachusetts obtains a warrant for him to return to the Bay State to face charges.
The process could take several weeks, according to officials.
Once in Massachusetts, Noguera will be arraigned on several charges, including accessory to murder after the fact, in connection with the shooting death of Daniel G. Smith, 35, who was found suffering from gunshot wounds in Easton. He died from his injuries on Friday.
Investigators are still seeking the public’s assistance in locating a red 2016 Mazda 3 sedan with Florida license plate tag number 372QQK, believed to be connected to the case.
