ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A suspect in the execution-style slayings of three college students in Newark, N.J., had an informal extradition hearing Thursday.

Twenty-four-year-old Rodolfo Godinez was arrested Aug. 18 in Oxon Hill. He's one of six suspects in the slayings of Delaware State University students Terrance Aeriel, Dashon Harvey, and Iofemi Hightower.

Godinez is the only suspect who has not been returned to New Jersey. He told a judge in Prince George's County shortly after his arrest that he would fight extradition.

On Thursday, Godinez appeared before an assistant attorney general whose job it is to recommend to Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley whether to sign extradition warrants. The brief hearing was closed to the public because it is considered investigative.
