Judge orders the Hyattes back to Tennessee

An Ohio judge has ordered a couple accused of killing a corrections officer to return to Tennessee to face murder and other charges.

George and Jennifer Hyatte appeared this Friday morning in front of Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Eric Brown in Columbus, Ohio. They chose not to challenge the legality of warrants issued this week by Governor Bredesen.

The Hyattes are accused of killing corrections officer Wayne "Cotton" Morgan during a violent getaway from the Roane County courthouse on August ninth. A 36-hour manhunt for the couple ended with their peaceful surrender at a Columbus motel.
