PORTLAND (AP) – A man wanted in last month’s fatal shooting in Boston of a 19-year-old woman at a makeshift shrine to her slain brother will soon be headed to Massachusetts to face a murder charge.

Laron Lewis Richardson, 18, of Boston’s Jamaica Plain section waived extradition to his home state on Wednesday, a day after his arrest following a tense standoff at a home near the University of Southern Maine.

The Portland District Court judge said Richardson must be transferred within 30 days, but his lawyer said it’ll likely take place within 48 hours.

Richardson was wanted in the July 22 killing of Analicia Perry, who was shot in the head as she was lighting candles at a shrine to her brother in Roxbury. Robert Perry was shot dead at the same location four years ago.

A task force investigating Analicia Perry’s murder had tracked Richardson to Biddeford and then to Portland, where he was found on Wednesday.

Another man linked to the slaying, Steven Sayles, 19, surrendered Monday in Boston. Sayles was ordered held on $350,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty to a charge of being an accessory after the fact to murder.
