LAS VEGAS -- The man police say is responsible for the death of aspiring Oakland rapper Ken Cherry as well as two others will be extradited from Los Angeles back to Nevada within the month, prosecutors announced Thursday.

Ammar Harris, 27, will be sent back to Nevada from a Los Angeles County jail by May 10, an aide to the Clark County District Attorney said Thursday. He is accused of shooting Cherry on Feb. 21 causing the crash that killed two people in a taxi struck by Cherry's car.

Court officials in Los Angeles said a status hearing on Harris' extradition was postponed from Friday to next Wednesday, but they did not say why.

Harris, a self-described pimp, was arrested by a fugitive apprehension team of police and FBI agents on Feb. 28 in Studio City.

Harris is accused of firing shots from a Range Rover SUV, mortally wounding Cherry, who was driving a Maserati sports car. The Maserati then drove forward and slammed into a taxi, killing the cabdriver, 62-year-old Michael Boldon, and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, of Maple Valley, Wash.

Authorities said in court documents that Harris and Cherry had argued minutes earlier in the valet area of a resort on the strip.

Five other people were injured in the crash.

Cherry, who went by his stage name "Kenny Clutch," had three children and grew up in Berkeley and Oakland and attended two Catholic high schools there.

He had moved to Las Vegas in recent years.
