A man accused of killing an acquaintance's mother over an alleged drug debt has been booked into the Pinal County Jail.

Corey Deandre Allen was extradited from Colorado after being arrested by U.S. Marshals in Leadville, Colo. on March 8.

Allen had a warrant issued for his arrest in November of 2012. He is facing charges of first degree murder and kidnapping.

Allen is accused of threatening and gunning down 50-year-old Linda Perelli-Brown in her San Tan Valley home. He allegedly did this because her 25-year-old daughter reportedly owed him a drug debt.

"The murder was done execution-style as Linda was pleading for her life while talking on the phone with her daughter," said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu earlier this month. "Thanks to the hard work of our homicide unit and the persistence of the U.S. Marshals Service, this killer is now in custody and will hopefully face the death penalty for this senseless crime."
