CASA GRANDE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The 18-year-old accused of shooting and killing a young woman and a girl in Casa Grande is now back in Arizona. Terrance Santistevan was extradited from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center in Austin, Texas on Tuesday. He was booked into a Pinal County jail on charges of first-degree murder.
