BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The man charged in the death of a police chief's daughter is headed back to North Carolina.

Michael Neal Harvey was arrested by authorities in Niagara Falls last month, wanted for the alleged murder of 23-year-old Valerie Hamilton.

Authorities from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department picked up Harvey Tuesday, who will take him to North Carolina where he faces charges.

Harvey, who was convicted of rape in Niagara Falls back in 1996, is accused of killing Hamilton and dumping her body near Charlotte, North Carolina in September.
