SHELBY, NC (WBTV) -

Irving Fenner Jr, signed an extradition waiver Thursday, which means he will be brought back to North Carolina. Despite this, he still sits behind bars in Rhode Island.

Cleveland County District Attorney Mike Miller said Fenner, who is accused of shooting and Killing Shelby Police officer Tim Brackeen, will be in Cleveland County within the next two weeks.

"Unlike if it was just an adjoining county, he's actually in Rhode Island, so that's actually a logistical difference there," Miller said.

Fenner initially fought extradition. On Thursday, though, he signed papers waiving extradition.

"Once he waived it, we can go get him. We'll have a team of agents or officers travel from North Carolina to Rhode Island, and pick him up and return him to Cleveland County," Miller said.

Six others have also been arrested in connection to the case, with charges including accessory after the fact of first degree murder, harboring a criminal, and harboring a fugitive.

Jolisa Peeler, Fenner's half-sister, has already been extradited to North Carolina from Rhode Island. She is charged with accessory after the fact of first degree murder.

Authorities are also working to extradite Casey Fenner - also Fenner's half-sister - to North Carolina. She has already waived extradition, and Miller said she, too, should be here within two weeks.

Irving Fenner has been indicted by a grand jury in Rhode Island. He will make a first appearance in Cleveland County court when he arrives.

Miller has already filed paperwork seeking the death penalty for Fenner.
