·1-min read

A man charged with murder over the death of another man in an Adelaide house fire will face court after being extradited from NSW.

The 32-year-old Woodville West man was arrested interstate on March 17 after three people were hurt in a house fire in the same Adelaide suburb, some 9km northwest of the CBD, that police believe was deliberately lit.

A 31-year-old man and two women, aged 27 and 28, inside the home were taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with serious burns.

The man died in hospital on March 20.

The Woodville West man was taken to a Sydney hospital under police guard after crashing his car in regional NSW before his arrest.

South Australian detectives travelled to NSW on Friday to escort him back to Adelaide where he is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

Police say all parties are known to each other, with the incident not considered a random attack.
