OBX murder suspect to return to Dare County

DARE COUNTY - A man wanted on a murder charge in the death of a 33-year-old Ohio mom has waived extradition and will return to Dare County to face murder charges.

Authorities have been searching for Nathan Summerfield, 27, since July when his ex-girlfriend Lynn Jackenheimer went missing after an Outer Banks beach vacation with Summerfield and her children in July. Her body was later discovered in a vacant lot in Frisco, a town near Cape Hatteras.

Summerfield was taken into custody by U.S. marshals in Ashland, Ohio, earlier this week.  Friday, Summerfield waived extradition and will be transported back to North Carolina. 

Summerfield's brother has told authorities that Summerfield said he strangled the woman.
