RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- The Riverside County district attorney's office has been working since December to extradite a convicted police killer from Arizona's death row so he can be tried for the murder of a Blythe convenience store clerk 15 years ago.

Court documents here and in Arizona show Riverside County wants to retrieve Ernesto Salgado Martinez, 34, formerly of Indio. He is at the Arizona State Prison Complex - Eyman, in Florence.
