OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Adam Price, the father of two children who were found dead inside a Bellevue home on Sunday, is scheduled to appear in a California court on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time. The hearing was postponed from Tuesday.

Bellevue Police Department spokesperson, Sgt. Andy Jashinske said authorities have no official cause of death for the children until testing is completed. He also confirmed that there are Bellevue police detectives speaking with Price in California as he awaits the extradition hearing.

He was arrested on a fugitive warrant in Pacifica, California — a beachside town near San Francisco.
