BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — 15-year-old Logan Mott has waived his right to an extradition hearing and has voluntarily agreed to return to Florida.
Mott, who was taken into custody on Nov. 24 after making a wrong turn at the Peace Bridge, was accused of killing his grandmother.
Kristina French, 53, was found dead in a shallow grave at a Florida home earlier that day. Officials say she suffered gunshot and stab wounds.
When Mott was stopped, three guns and a knife with blood were recovered, prosecutors say. According to officials, the guns were stolen from Mott’s father.
The teen had no connection to Buffalo, and was driving toward the U.S.-Canada border.
His extradition hearing was set to take place Friday morning before it was waived.
Outside of the courtroom, Mott’s mother said “Logan is a good kid with no previous history of anything, and he’s my son, and I love him. That’s all.”
Mott’s attorney said Florida authorities should be in western New York on Monday to bring Mott back to Florida.
