NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Kyron Fazande, the Chalmette man accused of murdering a server outside Mandina’s restaurant in April and wounding a patron inside, has been extradited from Texas to New Orleans on Monday (June 5).

Jail records show Fazande was booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail Monday at 8:59 p.m. The 22-year-old has been booked with single counts of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and aggravated battery.

Fazande is accused of killing Mandina’s waiter Hilbert Walker III outside the famed Mid-City restaurant and wounding a Chicago woman who was dining inside. New Orleans police said she was struck by a bullet that came through the wall.
