Kidnapping Suspect Coming to Philly This Week
The man accused of kidnapping a Germantown woman will head to Philadelphia this week to face federal charges, sooner than originally expected.
Delvin Barnes will be turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation Tuesday so that he can be transported to Philadelphia for a hearing in the U.S. Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Wednesday, according to a federal order obtained by NBC10.
Barnes, 37, has remained jailed on kidnapping and attempted murder charges in Virginia after waiving his extradition from Baltimore County, Maryland Thursday.
On Tuesday, FBI agents will pick him up and take him to Philadelphia, according to court papers. Federal authorities didn’t reveal the exact timing for when Barnes will be taken from the prison in Virginia to Philly.
Barnes is accused of kidnapping Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, and transporting her across state lines to Maryland. The pair were found late last week after an intensive manhunt.
