Click waives extradition

GRUNDY, Va. — A suspect in the murder of a McDowell County mayor chose Monday in a Virginia court to waive extradition proceedings and return to West Virginia.

Earl Click, 26, of Grundy, Va., was arrested July 20 along with his sister, Rebecca Lynn Hatcher, 31, of War. Both Click and Rebecca Hatcher were charged with first-degree murder in the death of her father-in-law, Dr. Thomas C. “Tom” Hatcher, mayor of War in McDowell County.

Click appeared for a hearing Monday in Buchanan County General District Court. During that hearing before Judge Richard Patterson, Click waived his right to an attorney and his right to extradition proceedings, according to the judge’s administrative assistant.
