PATERSON, N.J. -- A fugitive captured in South Carolina in the cold-blooded shooting death of another man in Paterson last month was extradited to New Jersey.

Gyasi Allen, 26, was being held on $1 million bail in the Pasaic County Jail, charged with murder in the slaying of Cosmeik Gee, Passaic County Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik said..

Marshals took him into custody in Florence County earlier this month on murder charges filed by by Paterson police.
