— A May 22 extradition hearing is scheduled for an Ohio man suspected of killing his mother in Ohio before his arrest in Delavan.

Ryan Dillon, 24, Springfield, Ohio, is being held in the Walworth County Jail awaiting an extradition hearing. He is being held for Ohio authorities on a felony theft warrant accusing him of stealing his stepfather's pickup truck.


Clark County, Ohio, authorities are in Elkhorn to process evidence and are meeting with Walworth County prosecutors. An Ohio television station reported that Dillon might fight the extradition, forcing a governor's warrant.


The Ohio television station reported that Dillon is a suspect in the murder of his mother, 59-year-old Vicky Burks. Authorities said she died from blunt force trauma to the head.


Dillon was arrested by Delavan police officers Thursday.
