BATON ROUGE - A 47-year-old woman arrested by New York authorities on Dec. 3 in the 1984 slaying of businessman has been extradited to Louisiana.

Leila Mulla, of Astoria, N.Y., was transported to Baton Rouge Thursday after being arrested by New York police. Mulla was booked with criminal conspiracy, simple robbery and first-degree murder.

Sixty-four-year-old Ronald Dalton Dunnagan, of Bossier City, La., was arrested by the Bossier Parish sheriff's deputies and booked on Dec. 4 on counts of first-degree murder, simple robbery and criminal conspiracy in the case.

The two are accused of conspiring to rob and kill Gary Kergan, of Crowley, La., sometime around Nov. 29, 1984. Police said Kergan was last seen alive at Mulla's north Baton Rouge home.

It was unclear whether the suspects have attorneys.
