King County prosecutors on Tuesday charged Jarod Thomas Lane, 19, with first-degree murder and first-degree arson in the death of his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend, Jessica Scholl.

Lane is accused of inside the house May 25. Scholl's home is just two blocks from , where she was a student. Lane graduated from the same high school in 2011.

Lane was arrested Monday in Oklahoma City, where he remains in jail on $2 million bail. He appeared before a judge Tuesday morning and decided to waive his extradition; however, that could change now that formal charges have been filed in King County, said Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the King County Prosecutor's Office.

Donohoe said more will be known about the extradition process Wednesday. If Lane chooses to waive extradition following Tuesday afternoon’s charges from Washington state, he will be back in Washington in about one week.

Arraignment is scheduled for June 11 at 9 a.m. at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center, courtroom GA, in Kent.
