Man Charged With Second Degree Murder Extradited From Venezuela
A man charged with a 2011 murder has been extradited back to Nova Scotia ahead of a court appearance tomorrow.
44-year-old Steven Douglas Skinner faces a second-degree murder charge in the death of Stacey Adams from Dartmouth.
Adams was found dead at a Lake Echo home in April 2011.
Skinner left the country the day after Adams’s death and eventually was found in Venezuela last year where he’s been in custody since.
Skinner also faces two counts assault with a weapon and uttering threats as well as aggravated assault, forcible confinement and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
RCMP say they’ve been working with Venezuelan authorities for the past year.
Adams’s family is thankful to Venezuela’s government for agreeing to extradite Skinner back to Nova Scotia.
