YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – A man accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s 8-year-old son to death is being extradited to Pennsylvania.

Keith Burley appeared before a judge in Youngstown, Ohio, on Thursday, two days after he was arrested there.

He waived his extradition hearing and will be returned to Pennsylvania to face homicide and other charges.

He’s accused of stabbing the 8-year-old following an altercation with the boy’s mother inside in a car on Monday night. Police say Burley took off with the victim and the boy’s little brother after the mother went to get help.

Police say he took them to a home in New Castle,, and the brother and two other boys witnessed the stabbing.

According to a criminal complaint, Burley yelled “Die!” as he stabbed the boy.

Burley was on parole for a previous homicide. No attorney information is available.
