ORLAND PARK — A 20-year-old Ohio woman is waiving extradition and will be returned to Illinois to face charges in the stabbing death of a Chicago teacher.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Alisha Walker waived extradition Monday. She was being held in Fort Wayne, Ind. after being arrested there on a first-degree murder warrant for the death of 61-year-old Al Filan.

The business teacher at Brother Rice High School was found dead on the floor of his Orland Park home last week. An autopsy determined Filan died of multiple stab wounds.

It wasn't immediately clear if Walker has an attorney. Since she isn't fighting extradition, she'll eventually be taken back to Cook County to be arraigned.
