FOLEY — A Cold Spring woman charged with murdering her ex-husband in Sauk Rapids has not agreed to be transferred back to Minnesota. 38-year-old Angelina Omara continues to be held in a South Dakota jail.

Benton County Attorney Robert Raupp says if Omara doesn’t waive extradition before her November 28th hearing there, they will seek a Governor’s Warrant to have her brought back to Benton County to face the murder charge.

Omara is accused of shooting James Omara once in the head with a small caliber handgun. He was found dead of a gunshot wound to his head inside his apartment November 1st.

Omara is also being investigated in the shooting death of her boyfriend Michael Pies whose body was found in an Ashland, Wisconsin hotel room a day later. No charges have been filed in that case yet, however.
