Ontonagon County man wanted for murder in Louisiana

ONTONAGON, MI--   An Ontonagon County man is being extradited to Louisiana on a murder charge.  

Mason Chiapuzio, 19, of Ironwood Township was arrested in the U.P. in May on a warrant from the Baton Rouge Police Department.  He and three other suspects are charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a man in April of 2012. 

A judge ruled Tuesday that Chiapuzio could be extradited.  He’ll remain in the Ontonagon County Jail until Louisiana authorities arrive.
