EL PASO — After the Feb. 7 arrest of Roger Evan Garrett, 54, in connection to his stepfather's 1977 death, the murder suspect was scheduled for extradition from Knoxville, Tenn. to El Paso.

Garrett faces charges of murder in the death of Major Chester Garrett over 30 years ago, who investigators said died of blunt force trauma to the head and stab wounds. Garrett's mother, Lisbeth Garret, 74, is also charged in the death.

He is expected to be booked into the El Paso County Detention facility Tuesday night, and he will be held on a $5 million bond.
