San Joaquin County Judge Michael Mulvihill authorized on Friday the extradition of Randall Saito to Hawaii, according to Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin.

The judge set a status conference for Jan. 5 to track arrangements for physical transfer of Saito.  U.S. Marshals will be tasked with bringing Saito back to Hawaii on a non-commercial flight.

Saito will face felony escape charges for leaving the Hawaii State Hospital on Nov. 12.  He then boarded a charter flight to Maui and then a commercial flight to San Jose, Calif.

Saito previously told the judge that he doesn't want to go back to Hawaii.
