WASHINGTON (AP) -- A man wanted by Idaho authorities in an attack that left a church pastor seriously wounded will be extradited from Washington, D.C., where he was arrested after allegedly throwing items over the White House fence.

U.S. Attorney's Office Spokesman Bill Miller said a judge ordered 30-year-old Kyle Odom's extradition on Wednesday.

Authorities say Odom shot pastor Tim Remington eight times outside The Altar Church in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, on March 6, then flew to Washington, where he was arrested while throwing items onto the White House lawn.

Remington is recuperating at home and recently told supporters he'll return to his parish soon.
