Jackson Farrey Baby Death: Mother to be extradited to El Paso in early December

EL PASO, Texas - Jenna Farrey is expected to be extradited from Michigan to El Paso on Dec. 3, an El Paso County Sheriff's official told ABC-7 Friday afternoon.

El Paso County Sheriff Commander Paul Cross told ABC-7 they have 10 working days - which would be Dec. 5 - to pick her up but that they planned on bringing her back to El Paso on Dec. 3.

Other extraditions have to be performed before Farrey's which is why she isn't being brought back sooner, Cross said. The sheriff's office usually does at least a couple of extraditions a week.

The Farrey family, including Jenna, her husband Army Spc. Jeffrey, 18-month-old Blake, and Jackson, were reported missing Nov. 15. All but Jackson were found on Nov. 17 at a hotel in Escanaba, Mich.

Law enforcement found a body Nov. 20 near Orogrande, N.M. that they believe to be Jackson.

Jackson's mother, Jenna Farrey, waived her extradition hearing during a court proceeding on Nov. 20 in Escanaba, Mich. Jenna was being held in Delta County Jail in Michigan on a charge of being a fugitive of justice for violating her probation on a 2012 conviction for abandoning a child with intent to return. Her five-year probation sentence did not allow her to leave the state.

Jeffrey was extradited to El Paso from Michigan on Nov. 20 and charged with injury to a child by omission. His bond is set at $1.5 million. He is being held in isolation and is on suicide watch.
