Woman charged in gas station killing waives extradition

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - One of four people charged with murder in the killing of a gas station attendant waived her right to fight extradition on Friday.

Alexis Flowers's decision now paves the way for her to be transported from the Lehigh County Prison in Allentown to Warren County, New Jersey.

Flowers, 21, of Allentown, was arrested by city police officers on Wednesday, along with Zachary Flowers, 18, and Andy Torres, 22, the man who police said they believe pulled the trigger and shot Kismathdas Kasam during a robbery at a BP gas station in Phillipsburg on Jan. 5.

Kasam, 47, died two days later.

The fourth suspect in the robbery and homicide, David Beagell, 21, of Blakeslee, Monroe Co., was arrested by Allentown police on Thursday.

Zachary Flowers, Torres and Beagell are scheduled for extradition hearings in Lehigh County next Tuesday.

All four suspects are charged with first degree felony murder, armed robbery and related offenses. Torres was also charged with first degree murder for his alleged role as the trigger-man.
