KANAB, Utah (AP) -- A man accused of killing a Utah sheriff's deputy in far northern Arizona is scheduled for an extradition hearing Thursday.

Authorities say Scott Curley used a rifle to fatally shoot Kane County sheriff's Deputy Brian Harris a week ago in Fredonia, a tiny Arizona town south of the Utah border.

He was captured early Monday after a resident reported that a man who had a rifle slung over his shoulder was trying to break into a home outside Kanab, Utah.

Curley is being held on a $500,000 bond on a fugitive warrant for first-degree murder out of Arizona and a $100,000 bond on Utah felony charges of attempted aggravated burglary and criminal trespass.

The court hearing is scheduled Thursday at noon MDT in Kanab.
