HELENA, Ala. (WLUC) - UPDATE: An Iron County man, suspected of assault in Upper Michigan and homicide in Wisconsin and Alabama, will soon be extradited to Michigan.

Caleb Anderson, 23, signed a waiver of extradition at the Shelby County Court Friday morning, Aug. 5.

He will be extradited to Iron County, Mich., according to the court. The state of Alabama issued a warrant for Anderson on a Fugitive from Justice charge Thursday. He was arrested in Shelby County, Ala. on Wednesday and has been held at the Shelby County Jail without bond.

There have been no new developments in the Wisconsin homicide investigation regarding Anderson, according to Green Bay Police.

Anderson is being charged with murder and first-degree burglary in Alabama.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says Anderson was linked to the murder of Dwight Dixon, 52, near Alabama’s Gulf Coast.

Police from Flomaton, Ala., found Dixon dead when they responded to an emergency call on Dixon Rd. on Wednesday, August 3. That was a day after Green Bay police started investigating a suspicious death at an apartment complex on Packerland Drive. Police realized the victim’s car was missing and put out a national alert.

Anderson was arrested Wednesday afternoon by U.S. marshals in Helena, Alabama, after the Green Bay victim’s car was spotted driving into the city.

Flomaton is near the Gulf Coast and is almost a three-hour drive south of Helena, according to Google Maps. It’s nearly 1,100 miles south of Green Bay.
