A Nebraska prosecutor says he expects a man accused of shooting two Iowa deputies, one fatally, while escaping from jail to agree to be sent back to Iowa this week to face charges there.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, the Omaha area's top prosecutor, said Wednesday that a public defender for Wesley Correa-Carmenaty has said he will waive an extradition hearing in court Thursday. That would allow officials to take him back to Iowa as soon as that afternoon to face murder, attempted murder and other charges.

Correa-Carmenaty was being transporting to the Council Bluffs jail Monday when officials say he managed to grab one of the deputies' guns and shoot them both, killing Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Burbridge.

A Nebraska judge has set bail at $10 million for a man accused of shooting two Iowa deputies, one fatally, while escaping from jail earlier this week.

Wesley Correa-Carmenaty was surrounded by six officers Wednesday as the Omaha judge read off the Nebraska charges against him, including kidnapping, which carries a potential life sentence. Prosecutors allege that the 24-year-old carjacked a woman after escaping from the jail across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and didn't let her go until he drove to Omaha.
