Murder suspect extradited to Minot from Wisconsin
MINOT, N.D. – A man charged in a Minot murder has been extradited back to North Dakota.
Prosecutors charged 28-year-old Donald Cooper, Jr., as an accomplice to murder, in the January 2020 killing of 29-year-old Dominick Stephens.
Cooper fled the state and was tracked down in Wisconsin.
While fleeing from U.S. Marshals in April of 2020, Cooper caused a vehicle crash in Milwaukee that led to the deaths of two people.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison in their deaths.
Cooper made his initial appearance on the charges in Minot last week and will be arraigned in June.
Two other men have been sentenced in the case.
