CONCORD, N.H. (WHDH) - A woman accused of stabbing a man in the head with a knife has been extradited from Boston to New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office announced.

On May 14, the Boston Police Department arrested Beard on the warrant in Boston and charged her with being a Fugitive from Justice. Tuesday morning, she had a hearing at the South Boston Division of the Boston Municipal Court. She waived her right to extradition proceedings and was transported b ack to New Hampshire to face charges there. Her arraignment is scheduled for June 22 in Manchester.
