SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The Galesburg man charged with the April 1 murder of Jenni McGruder waived extradition Tuesday morning in Minnehaha County.
The sheriff's office there and the Knox County Sheriff's Office will arrange to bring Jonathan I. Kelly, 28, back to Galesburg.
Kelly was arrested May 27 in South Dakota by the Sioux Falls Area Fugitive Task Force. That unit is made up of the U.S. Marshals Service, Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office and Sioux Falls Police Department.
Kelly had been sought after he was charged in a no bond arrest warrant in Knox County on three counts of first-degree murder in the April 1 slaying of Jenni McGruder, 26.
Kelly is alleged to have fired three rounds at a group of people behind then-open Seminary Street Pub, 105 S. Seminary St., early Easter morning. One bullet struck McGruder from 40 to 50 yards away in a city parking lot that runs behind the first block of South Seminary Street.
Galesburg police have said Kelly was reportedly in a "family dispute" with another Galesburg man that started inside Seminary Street Pub and spilled outside of the bar into the parking lot.
McGruder was an innocent bystander, according to previous statements made by Galesburg police.
