Otter Tail County, MN (WDAY TV) - An Otter Tail County man in an Arizona jail charged with murdering his cousin over a drug debt is headed back to Minnesota to face the charges.

23-year-old Michael Kyle Burris is facing felony second-degree murder charges for killing Scott Burris. He has waived extradition.

Also charged is his father, 65-year-old Michael Alan Burris who's still fighting extradition. The pair was arrested in Arizona on August 12th.

Scott Burris was missing from Elizabeth this spring. His body was found in the Otter Tail River about a month later with a single gunshot wound last year.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.
