This is an extradition case. The Governor of this state issued his executive warrant based upon the requisition and supporting papers of the Governor of the State of Louisiana, authorizing the arrest, delivery, and return of appellant to the State of Louisiana.
Appellant sought his discharge by a writ of habeas corpus filed in Criminal District Court No. 2, of Tarrant County, Texas. After a hearing, appellant was remanded to the sheriff of Tarrant County for delivery to the agents of the state of Louisiana, and from said order he gave notice of appeal.
The executive warrant of the Governor of this state was introduced in evidence. It made out a prima facie case authorizing appellant's return. Ex parte Guinn, 162 Tex. Crim. 293, 284 S.W.2d 721.
