SAC CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Nebraska woman has been extradited to Iowa in a 2001 shooting death.

KITV-TV reports 45-year-old Tracey Richter-Roberts, of Omaha, Neb., is being held without bail in the Sac County jail. She’s due in court next week.

Richter-Roberts was arrested Tuesday in Omaha. She’s charged with first-degree murder in the 2001 shooting death of 20-year-old Dustin Wehde.

Richter-Roberts shot Wehde – a family friend – multiple times in her home on Dec. 13, 2001. She had told authorities at the time that she and her three children were in the home when Wehde and another man broke in and attacked her.

No charges were brought against Richter-Roberts at the time but the investigation was reopened in 2009.
