 Illinois Man Wanted for Murder, Arrested in Charles City, Headed Back to Face Charges

 An Illinois man, apprehended in Charles City on a murder warrant, is headed back to the Land of Lincoln.

On May 4th, Charles City Police responded to a report of multiple people fighting. Their investigation led to the arrest of 27-year-old Haniff Caldwell of Rockford, Illinois, on a valid arrest warrant for homicide -willful kill with gun and assault. 

According to court documents, a warrant for Caldwell’s arrest was filed in Cook County, Illinois, on February 21st, but it does not indicate when the alleged crime occurred or the victim involved. The warrant did classify Caldwell as armed and dangerous.

Caldwell has been held without bond in the Floyd County Jail, but during a hearing Monday (05.13) morning, he officially waived extradition in Floyd County District Court. Judge Gregg Rosenblatt then ruled he be sent back to Illinois to face charges there.

Caldwell filed a letter last week that indicated he would waive extradition and also wished the Court to “have a blessed day.”

Charles City Police were assisted by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa State Patrol in taking Caldwell into custody.
