The Southern Arkansas University student charged with animal cruelty in connection to stolen horses from the university's rodeo team waived extradition to McCurtain County, Oklahoma Tuesday.

Jaci Jackson,19, of Broken Bow, Oklahoma and member of SAU's rodeo team, remains behind bars at the Columbia County jail facing six felony theft charges.

Columbia County Sheriff's deputies say Jackson has paid the $100,000 bond, but there remains a hold for her in McCurtain County, where she faces three additional charges, including animal cruelty.
