BURLINGTON, Vt. – Police say four suspects in the fatal beating of a man at a Vermont homeless camp are not going to fight efforts to be brought back to Burlington from California to face murder charges.
Burlington police say the suspects, arrested last week in San Diego, have waived extradition and will be returned to Vermont to face second-degree murder charges in the death of 38-year-old Amos Beede.
Beede was beaten May 23 as part of a dispute between two Burlington homeless encampments. Beede died of his injuries May 28.
The suspects, all in their 20s, are Erik Averill, Myia Barber, Allison Gee and Jordan Paul. They were arrested June 2.
Burlington police say they are working out the extradition details.
