BALTIMORE — A man police believe killed the mother of his children and abducted one of the girls in central Maryland has waived extradition from South Carolina.
Baltimore County police say Timothy Virts killed 36-year-old Bobbie Jo Cortez last week at her Dundalk home and fled with one of their 11-year-old twin daughters.
Virts and the girl were found Friday in a motel in Florence, S.C.
Police said Monday that he has talked with detectives. It was not clear exactly when he would return to Maryland. Upon his return, authorities will charge him with first-degree murder.
The 11-year-old girl returned Saturday to Maryland and police say she appears to be physically unharmed. The children are in the care of social services officials.
