Accused couple won't fight extradition to El Paso County

The couple charged in the death of a little girl in Monument were back in court Tuesday in Nevada.

Hanif Sims and Monique Lynch are being held in a Henderson jail. They were arrested last week at a motel there.

The pair were back in court Tuesday and signed a waiver of extradition, that means they will not fight extradition back to El Paso County.

Lt. Lari Sevene tells News First 5's Lisa Lyden that El Paso County is now waiting on the warrant against Monique Lynch out of New Jeresy, to see which jurisdiction gets her first, before planning the trip to Nevada to pick the suspects up.

The body of 9 year old Genesis Sims was found in the crawl space of a Monument home back in May.
