Whisk Slay Suspects Out of California SACRAMENTO, Calif UP-Local authorities Thursday revealed how Colorado officers whisked a pair of California convicts out of the county jai' eariy Tuesday morn' ing and took them to Colorado to face murder charges. Chief Deputy Dist. Atty. Edward L. McCarthy said three Jefferson county, Colo., deputy sheriffs appeared at the jail at 2:30 a.m. to pick up Albert Kostal and Arthur Watson, inmates of Folsom Prison. The pair was being held in U.e county jail pending their fight to resist extradition. They arc accused* of killing a merchant patrol' man in Wheat Ridfe, Colo., shortly after they escaped from Folsom last fall. i McCarthy, said the surprise re- j m o v a l of the convicts came after ithey were turned down by one I court and it foiled any further 'Jesal moves to block the extradition. On Monday, Third District Court of Appeal rejected their contention tiat Gov. Knight had no legal authority to remove them from a California prison and deliver them to another state. Informed of the ruling, the Colorado deputies came here immediately. Asst. Public Defender Floyd Gilbert, who had been acting as at' torney for the two men, said he had planned to appeal the court 'ruling to the federal courti and the State Supreme Court. firemen Too Laic MIAMI.
