ROCHESTER, N.H. — A man charged in the stabbing deaths of a 10-year-old boy and two men in northern Maine has waived extradition from New Hampshire.

The Maine attorney general’s office says state police are currently arranging for the return of 20-year-old Thayne Ormsby to Aroostook County, where the killings took place. Spokeswoman Kate Simmons says it could take a few days to complete the arrangements.

A public defender represented Ormsby during his appearance Friday in Rochester District Court. Ormsby has been held in the Strafford County jail since his arrest on July 2 in Dover.

In Maine, Ormsby is charged with three counts of murder for the deaths of Jeffrey Ryan, his 10-year-old son, Jesse, and Jason Dehahn, a friend and neighbor.
