    CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A man charged with capital murder for the
    slayings of two men in Conway in 2002 is to be returned to Arkansas
    to stand trial.

    Prosecutors say 61-year-old Richard Conte should be back in
    Arkansas by Oct. 7 from the Nevada prison where he has been held.
    Conte, a former physician, was charged in the Arkansas slayings
    of 48-year-old Carter Elliott and 25-year-old Timothy Robertson.
    The charges were filed this year as he finished a kidnapping
    sentence he was serving in Nevada.

    Prosecutor Cody Highland says he's obtained a governor's warrant to have Conte returned.
