The woman arrested in Florida in the execution-style shooting of a Brooklyn woman over the summer has been extradited to New York City to face criminal charges.

Police charged 42-year-old Claudia Banton of Georgia on Thursday with murder and criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly shooting Delia Johnson in the back of the head as she chatted with people by a stoop in August. The motive for the killing remains unclear at this point.

Banton, who also goes by the names Claudia Williams and Kiesha Brown, was picked up by police in Jacksonville, Florida, earlier this month — more than three months after the killing in Crown Heights that was caught on camera.
