CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A Florida man suspected of faking his own death will now face accusations back home.

Fifty-year-old David Leon Lashley was arrested last month in Wyoming near the Montana border, where authorities say he was living under the name Wesley Byrd. The Park County, Wyo. sheriff’s office said late Monday that Lashley has been handed over to the U.S. Coast Guard for extradition back to Florida.

Sheriff Scott A. Steward has said that Lashley was wanted by the Coast Guard in connection with the disappearance of a houseboat in which he allegedly attempted to fake his death. He is also wanted for failing to appear in court in March.

The warrant for Lashley’s arrest was issued in Gainesville, Fla.
