WASHINGTON — A scheduled hearing that would have seen Mark Redwine waive extradition and return to Colorado to face charges in the state fizzled on Monday when the hearing was canceled unexpectedly. 

Court records show Redwine and his representatives were slated to appear to waive extradition, which would have expedited the alleged killer's return to Colorado, but despite expectations by Whatcom County prosecutors, Redwine did not go through with the hearing.

"We were led to believe the defendant was waiving extradition from his attorney, but it did not happen," Whatcom County Prosecutor Dave McEachran told Denver7 Investigates. 

Redwine faces charges in La Plata County of killing his son Dylan Redwine then disposing of the 13-year-old's body. 

The search for all of the teen's remains spanned from his disappearance to the present day, with some in the La Plata County community questioning why it took so long for police to make an arrest. 

Redwine will appear in court next on Aug. 17. It's not yet known what will happen upon that appearance.
