A man with Boulder ties who was arrested last week in a northern California triple homicide case was extradited Tuesday from Colorado to Sonoma County, where he is facing murder charges.
Odin Dwyer, 38, was booked into the Sonoma County Jail on charges including three counts of murder, jail administrators say. He was arrested in Adams County on Friday in connection to the Feb. 5 shooting deaths of three men inside a home near Forestville, Calif., according to Sonoma County Sheriff's Lt. Dennis O'Leary.
Detectives say they think the killings were related to a marijuana deal gone wrong. The victims were Raleigh Butler, 26, of Petaluma, Calif., Richard Lewin, 46, of Huntington, N.Y., and Todd Klarkowski, 42, of Boulder.
Dwyer, one of three suspects, is being held on $250,000 bond and is scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday.
He formerly worked as a line cook at Pearl Street's Lazy Dog Bar and Grill, though staff members said he was fired after only a few months.
Dwyer's father, Francis Dwyer, 65, was arrested Friday at his home in Truth or Consequences, N.M. He has not yet been extradited to California, O'Leary said.
The third suspect in the case, Mark Cappello, 48, of Central City, made his first appearance in Sonoma County court Tuesday. His arraignment hearing was rescheduled for March 12, O'Leary said.
