The man suspected of gunning down Fairfield City Councilman Matt Garcia has been expected to be back in Solano County.

Henry Don Williams is in Solano County Jail.

Police say 32-year-old Williams waived his extradition rights in a Nevada courtroom early Tuesday morning. Williams was arrested Saturday in Las Vegas, where authorities say he was working at a restaurant under an assumed name.

Authorities say Williams fired the bullet that hit the 22-year-old councilman Matt Garcia in the back of the head on September First. Williams and another suspect in the case -- Gene Allen Combs of Suisun City -- have been charged with murder.

Police say they believe Williams and Combs were in the area to collect a drug debt, and Williams mistook Garcia for someone else. They say Garcia was an innocent victim.
