Judge Refuses Dismissal Motion in 2007 Killing


DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware judge has refused to dismiss charges against a man accused of murder in a 2007 shooting at a mobile home park near Newark.
Following a hearing Thursday, the judge refused to dismiss the case against Jason Slaughter. Slaughter, who could face the death penalty if convicted of killing 22-year-old Christopher Masters, claimed he was improperly extradited from Georgia.
Slaughter was found outside Masters' home in 2007 with a gunshot wound but was never charged. He told police he had been shot in a home invasion.
But Georgia police contacted Delaware authorities in 2010 after charging Slaughter and his wife in a fatal shooting in that state. Investigators later found that Slaughter had life insurance policies on both the Georgia and Delaware shooting victims naming Slaughter as the beneficiary.
