Michael George Waives Extradition Trial

Pennsylvania retailer and Pittsburgh Comic-Con organizer Michael George has apparently given up fighting extradition, and will return to Michigan to face murder charges. Michigan authorities have accused George of murdering his then wife in 1990, in his then-store, located in Clinton, Michigan. George subsequently moved to Pennsylvania, re-married and began a new retail operation. He has denied the charges. Given how thoroughly the challenge was swept aside, it's unclear the point George was making in fighting the return to Michigan, except maybe as political capital in terms of being seen as fighting every step of the way, or to cast Michigan authorities as overzealous and untrustworthy.
