GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A man wanted for an elderly couple's murder in Kentwood is fighting extradition back to Michigan.

Authorities arrested Javonte Higgins in Illinois last month, where he's charged with resisting arrest.

He is also expected to be charged with the murders of David and Vivian Bouwman, when he returns to Michigan. Police believe the couple was shot and killed during a home invasion in early January.

Higgins will remain in the Cook County jail until his next hearing on April 22.
