AVONDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

The man suspected of shooting his ex-girlfriend to death in front of their 4-year-old daughter in Avondale has been extradited from Las Vegas and is being held in Arizona on a $1 million bond for first-degree homicide, police said Thursday.

Michael Hall, 41, was arrested as he walked back to his red 2002 PT Cruiser in the area of the Luxor Hotel about 6 a.m. on Nov. 20, according to Sgt. Brandon Busse of the Avondale Police Department.

Hall's vehicle had been under surveillance by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department since about 1 a.m. after they had received a tip Hall was in the area, police said.

Hall, 41, is believed to have shot Donella Clauschee, 28, several times on Nov. 19, after she strapped her daughter into the family car, Busse said. A search had been under way for Hall.

Hall and Clauschee had recently split up, and in August, Clauschee had taken out an order of protection against Hall, Busse said. The order was dismissed Aug. 20 when the couple was told to work things out since they had the child together.
