Meantime, after nearly three days, the Mahnomen County Sheriff is writing up the complaint. Since the case stretches three counties, authorities hadn't received papers from Benton County until today.

The complaint will be forwarded to the county attorney, with arraignment planned tomorrow, once Thorson is extradited.
