BECKLEY - A Pennsylvania doctor accused of poisoning his wife with Cyanide will be back in Raleigh County court next week. 64-year-old Robert Ferrante will appear before Judge Kirkpatrick on Monday for an extradition hearing.  Ferrante was arrested Thursday night in Ghent by West Virginia State Police after he was wanted on a criminal homicide charge for the death of his wife, Doctor Autumn Klein.  She passed away on April 20th after falling ill. Investigators say Klein died of Cyanide poisoning. Police from Pittsburgh were traveling to Florida to serve the warrant to Ferrante, but he was already heading north. When law enforcement in West Virginia was notified that he was possibly heading through the Mountain State they put out a bolo. He is currently awaiting his hearing in Southern Regional Jail.
