 The new charges may be behind the delay in transporting Burris from Arizona to Minnesota to face charges for murdering his nephew, Scott Burris. Michael Alan Burris' son, Micheal Kyle Burris, is also charged in that case and has already been brought from Arizona to Minnesota. The pair is accused of shooting Scott Burris in the head and killing him over a drug debt.

 The governor of Arizona has issued a warrant for Michael Alan Burris' return.
