A man ac­cused of killing his 13-year-old son won’t re­turn to Colorado to face trial as quickly as ex­pected.

Mark Red­wine was ex­pected to waive ex­tra­di­tion this week and be re­turned to La Plata County, where he’s been in­dicted on sus­pi­cion of sec­ond-de­gree mur­der and child abuse re­sult­ing in Dy­lan Red­wine’s death in 2012. But the hear­ing was can­celed be­cause “he and his at­tor­ney did not want to go ahead with the waiver,” What­com County, Wash., prose­cu­tor Dave McEachran said.

Red­wine has been jailed since he was ar­rested in Belling­ham, Wash., on July 22. He still can waive ex­tra­di­tion at any point, or he can wait for an ex­tra­di­tion re­quest from Colorado, forc­ing his re­turn, McEachran said.

“So ei­ther way, it doesn’t mat­ter,” he said.

Colorado Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne signed that re­quest July 28, say­ing she re­spect­fully de­manded that Red­wine be de­liv­ered to La Plata County sher­iff’s Capt. Larry Foukas and re­turned to the state “to be dealt with ac­cord­ing to law.”

Red­wine’s next court ap­pear­ance is set for Aug. 17. Pros­e­cu­tors can re­quest a con­tin­u­ance if Lynne’s re­quest has not been pro­cessed.
