SOUTH BEND — One of the people accused of killing a 2-year-old in South Bend has waived extradition proceedings in Illinois and will return to St. Joseph County.
Xavier Primm, 23, has been charged with assisting a criminal, a Class C felony, according to a press release from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office.
Since Primm has agreed to come to St. Joseph County, the prosecutor's office does not have to obtain a governor's warrant.
Once Primm returns, he will be arraigned, according to the release. A hearing time and date will be announced at a later time.
John Swoveland Jr. was killed by a stray bullet during a shootout between two rival groups, according to The Elkhart Truth's news partner, WNDU.
