Authorities say 15-year-old Logan Mott could have an extradition hearing as early as today to see if he'll be forced back to Florida to face charges.

He was detained near the u.s. Canadian border over the weekend.

The teen's defense attorney denies he was involved in his grandmother's death. Police found the remains of 53-year-old Kristina French in the backyard of a Neptune Beach home.

Deputies say the Florida teen drove her stolen car all the way to Buffalo without a license.
