The man accused of killing a North Carolina police chief’s daughter is expected in an upstate New York courtroom where he will be arraigned as a fugitive from justice.
Police say Michael Neal Harvey killed 23-year-old Valerie Hamilton last week and dumped her body in a self-storage unit.
A team of state, local and federal officers arrested the convicted sex offender on Monday at a home in Niagara Falls, where he was raised.
The 34-year-old Harvey was expected to appear Tuesday morning in Niagara County Court in nearby Lockport. The appearance was postponed until Tuesday afternoon because paperwork was unfinished.
He was wanted on a murder warrant after Hamilton’s body was found Saturday in a Charlotte, N.C., self-storage unit.
She was the daughter of Concord, N.C., police Chief Merl Hamilton. Her funeral is being held Tuesday afternoon at a Concord church.
