Murderer stands before L.A. judge

Convicted murderer Sante Kimes made her first appearance in a Los Angeles court Wednesday, a day after being extradited from New York to stand trial with her son for a 1998 killing that could bring the death penalty.

In court, Kimes, 66, agreed to have her arraignment postponed until June 28.

Kimes was returned to California after being extradited from a New York prison where she already was serving a sentence of nearly 121 years to life for the murder of a Manhattan socialite.

Kimes and her son, Kenneth, 26, are charged in California with the March 1998 shooting of Granada Hills businessman David Kazdin, 63, whose body was found in a trash bin near Los Angeles International Airport.
