CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The two men who are accused of kidnapping and killing Uber driver Marlo Johnis Medina-Chevez have been extradited back to Mecklenburg County. 

Police say Medina-Chevez, 44 of Charlotte, left for work around 9:45 p.m. May 20 to pick up an Uber client and never returned home. He was later found dead and badly beaten in Rock Hill.

Police pulled over 24-year-old Diontray Adams and 20-year-old James Stevens in Maryland. The two were driving a dark blue 2008 Nissan Pathfinder that belonged to Medina-Chevez. His credit card also showed it had been used in Maryland.

Adams, who had Medina-Chevez’s credit card, was initially charged with credit card fraud and had outstanding Maryland warrants at the time of his arrest.

Adams was extradited Tuesday night and remains in custody at the Mecklenburg County Jail. 

Stevens was listed in the Mecklenburg County Jail Wednesday evening. Stevens was charged with possession of the stolen vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

The two both face additional charges of murder, kidnapping and robbery.
