Army major Roman Izzo, accused in 2011 Clearwater murder, extradited to Pinellas County

Roman Izzo, a Major in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, was extradited to Pinellas County on Thursday.
 
Detectives arrested Roman Izzo, a major in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, earlier this month after being indicted by a Pinellas County grand jury.
 
Izzo, 35, is being charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Vincent Edward Lee, 43.  Lee was found slain inside his condominium on Nov. 16, 2011, off Landmark Drive in the Countryside area.
 
Izzo is married to Lee's former wife.  Lee and his ex-wife were involved in a dispute over custody and living arrangements for their children after the couple divorced.
 
Izzo was being held in the Leavenworth County Jail until the extradition.
