OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says the father of a Cherokee girl in the middle of an adoption case must go to South Carolina to face accusations that he is interfering with custody of the girl.

Fallin said Wednesday she had signed an extradition order that sends Dusten Brown to South Carolina. She had said last month she wouldn't sign the document if Brown showed a willingness to work with Matt and Melanie Capobianco, who want to adopt 3-year-old Veronica.

Fallin's order does not change Veronia's current placement with Brown's family.

Brown was charged with custodial interference last month after refusing to give Veronica to her adoptive parents. The Capobiancos were finalized as her adoptive parents in July, but Brown did not turn the girl over.
