  • Snider: In a bit of a jam.
The St. Louis yoga instructor accused of killing a 70-year-old yoga guru in Pennsylvania has waived his right to an extradition hearing.

Joel Snider, 33, was arrested in Baltimore County, Maryland, last Wednesday -- two days after police in rural Pennsylvania found the bullet-riddled body of yogi Joe Fenton, aka "Sudharman," wrapped in a blanket.

The Milton, Pennsylvania paper Standard Journal reports that Snider could be extradited back to Pennsylvania as soon as this week where he'll face murder charges.

Snider recently operated the now-defunct Yoga For Everyone yoga studio in Webster Groves.
