Woman extradited to PBC to face murder charges

A woman accused of killing her ex-boyfriend in his Loxahatchee home is on her way back to Palm Beach County to face charges.

Melanie Eam was arrested in Maryland last month and was initially fighting extradition.

Now we have confirmed deputies are bringing her back to face murder charges.

Last month, Palm Beach County detectives found 21-year-old James Barry stabbed to death inside his Loxachatchee home. Deputies initially called Eam, his ex-girlfriend, a person of interest.

She was arrested when they tracked her down in Maryland a few days later.
