The Governor's Office in Virginia handles extraditions. The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office says they are waiting to hear from the Virginia Attorney General's office about when Jacob may be sent to SC.

Eight-year-old Raleigh Burdick was strangled. The coroner is still trying to determine how her mother Ashley Kaney died.

Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury says they using microscopic evidence, and he is hoping to learn more Monday afternoon.

He said this was a nine agency manhunt that crossed state lines, and he is proud of the fact that Jacob Philip was apprehended just hours after the crime scene was discovered. "Capt. Ric Ollic did an outstanding job orchestrating the whole thing. He had people from South Carolina all the way up to Virginia working at the same time and it's just amazing that he was arrested that quickly and that's because of everybody working together and not against one another and cooperating with each other."

Friday night a vigil is being held at 8PM for Ashley and Riley in Aiken.  Their memorial service is scheduled for Sunday at 3PM at Cedar Creek Church in Aiken. The family will receive friends at 2PM. Memorial contributions are requested in lieu of flowers. Send those to Shellhouse-Rivers Funeral home in Aiken. www.shellhousefuneralhome.com
