ELMIRA, NY (WENY) -- The suspect in a fatal crime spree in November is returning to New York. 

The Chemung County District Attorney's Office tells WENY News 32-year-old Curtis Burrows of Mansfield is in the process of being transferred back to New York.  

This comes after Chemung County obtained a Governor's Warrant. Burrows initially refused to waive extradition while in custody in Pennsylvania. 

As WENY News reported on November 3rd, Burrows allegedly attempted to kidnap a female acquaintance in Corning around 8:30 p.m. when she was parking her car, headed in to work. 

Police said the victim was able to get away, but Burrows stole her car. Just after 9:00 p.m., New York State Police found the car in a ditch at the end of Hickok
Road, near the intersection of Goff Road in the Town of Corning. 

Police believed Burrows ran away on foot. There was a connected incident of a home invasion with shots fired in Big Flats around 12:30 a.m.  

Police say 60-year-old Timothy Webster died during that home invasion. 

Burrows then allegedly drove off in a stolen truck to Pennsylvania, before he crashed in Mansfield. 

After asking a passerby to take him to a hospital, Burrows was apprehended  by Pennsylvania State Police around 4:00 a.m. on November 4th. 

He is expected to be arraigned Thursday morning.
