PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — A man wanted for a murder in Georgia turned himself into Pittsburgh Police early Wednesday morning.

22-year-old Austin Todd Stryker and two other men are charged in the murder of 21-year-old Hannah Bender from Lumpkin County, Georgia last month. Stryker was spotted in Clay County, West Virginia last week.

Pittsburgh Police say Stryker called them and Zone 3 officers took him into custody in Mount Washington at Virginia Ave. and Maple Terr.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says extradition efforts are underway.
