ANGOLA — A man charged with killing a romantic rival in northeastern Indiana more than 20 years ago has been extradited from India to face murder charges.

The Steuben County sheriff says FBI officials returned 47-year-old Mahfuz Huq to Indiana on Saturday from New Delhi, where he was arrested in 2011 while traveling from his native Bangladesh.

Sheriff Tim Troyer tells The Herald Republican that Huq will be held in the Marion County Jail in Indianapolis until he clears medical tests. He'll then be moved to Steuben County on charges in the 1989 stabbing death of 19-year-old Todd Kelley at his Hamilton home, about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne.

Authorities say Kelley was dating Huq's ex-girlfriend.

Huq's defense attorney, Linda Wagoner of Angola, didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
