(Tulsa-AP) -- An Oklahoma murder suspect arrested in North Carolina doesn't plan to return to Oklahoma willingly.

Authorities say Wayne Henry Garrison told officers he was going to fight extradition as they arrested him. Oklahoma authorities started the extradition process as soon as the murder charge was filed in Tulsa County.

A "governor's warrant" which will be approved by Governor Keating and sent to North Carolina's governor is being prepared by presecutors. A hearing on the warrant was scheduled for November 24th in North Carolina.

Garrison is charged in the decade-old death of 13-year-old Justin Wiles. The boy's dismembered body was found at a lake in Bixby. Garrison was arrested just after his release from a North Carolina prison where he had been incarcerated for drugging an 11-year-old boy.
