DURANGO, Colo. – Mark Redwine, the man arrested last July and charged with murdering his son, Dylan, in 2012, is expected to appear in a La Plata County courthouse Friday morning for his arraignment.

Redwine, 56, was extradited back to La Plata County last August following his July 2017 arrest in Bellingham, Washington. He faces a second-degree murder charge and a charge of child abuse knowingly or recklessly causing death. Both are class 2 felonies.

Redwine is scheduled to be arraigned Friday, according to court records.

Redwine is accused in the death of his 13-year-old son, Dylan, who went missing while on a court-ordered visit with his father outside of Durango during the week of Thanksgiving 2012.

Some of Dylan’s remains were found in June 2013 about 10 miles from his father’s home near Vallecito Lake.

In August 2015, the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner's Office announced that Dylan's manner of death had been updated to "homicide" and that Mark Redwine was officially the person of interest.

In mid-July 2016, deputies found “items of interest” after a five-day search for clues related to the boy’s death, but what those items of interest are has never been released.

Court records show there have been a flurry of orders in Redwine’s case in recent days. He has been held on a $750,000 bond since he was extradited back to Colorado last year.
