Man arrested in Md. for wife’s killing extradited to South Carolina

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man accused of killing his wife has been extradited to South Carolina after his arrest in Maryland.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets that 41-year-old Adrian McClintock was booked into jail Sunday on charges of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Bobo says U.S. Marshals had arrested McClintock this month outside a convenience store in the Baltimore area.

Authorities say McClintock’s wife, 37-year-old Temisha Collier, was fatally shot in June. She was found dead in the doorway of her home.

Bobo says McClintock confessed to the crimes during an interview the day after he was captured near Baltimore. He is held in Spartanburg County without bond.

It is unclear if McClintock has a lawyer who could comment.
