Samantha Stewart’s accused murderer Danueal Drayton extradited to New York

A man accused of killing a Queens nurse he met through a dating app was extradited from Los Angeles to New York on Thursday to face murder charges in the nearly four-year-old case, said the police.

Danueal Drayton, 31, was taken to a home in the NYPD section of Queens Village and charged in connection with the strangulation death of Samantha Stewart, who was found dead at her home in Jamaica on July 17, 2018, police said.

In addition to murder, he was charged with grand larceny, identity theft, criminal possession of stolen property, sexual misconduct, petty theft and unlawful possession of an identification card, according to the NYPD.

Authorities said Drayton allegedly has a history of violence against women he met online, both in the tri-state area and in LA.

He was accused of strangling his ex-girlfriend on Long Island a month before Stewart’s murder, but was released on his own at the time, according to Nassau County prosecutors.

Hours after Stewart’s death, Drayton allegedly raped and choked a woman he met on Tinder in Sunset Park, police said.

Drayton then fled to Los Angeles, where he was accused of the violent rape and first attempted murder of a California woman.

Police caught up with Drayton a week after Queens was murdered in a North Hollywood hotel room where he was holding a woman against her will, police said.

Stewart's body is removed from her home by authorities.
