LENOIR, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say Australia native Adam Baker, who has since returned home after his disabled daughter was murdered in North Carolina where he had lived, is being sought on a local arrest order on charges unrelated to her death.

The Hickory Daily Record reports ( ) Baker had a scheduled Monday court date in Caldwell County on a charge of failure to return rental property. His attorney, Shell Pierce, said Baker returned in January to Australia at the behest of federal immigration officials. The district attorney's office said it wouldn't drop the charges.
