YREKA, CA -- A former campus security guard accused of killing 23-year-old Kaylee Sawyer while on patrol near Central Oregon Community College, remains in a California jail. Edwin Lara appeared before a Siskiyou County judge Tuesday, but refused to sign extradition papers, which would have cleared the way for him to return to Deschutes County to face murder charges.
The 31-year-old Redmond man is being held without bail in Yreka, California, where he entered not guilty pleas on various charges stemming from his alleged actions while on the run after Sawyer’s July 24 murder
. He's due back in court next week.
