    A Las Vegas pastor who has been accused of sexually assaulting three girls in a Nevada congregation was ordered to be extradited from San Diego on Friday.

    Otis Henderson, 55, also known to some as Otis Holland, was turned into U.S.  Marshals in San Diego by the U.S.-Mexico border on Wednesday.

    On Friday, San Diego Superior Court Judge David Szumowski ordered him to be held without bail, while Henderson’s extradition is pending.

    Henderson was featured on “America’s Most Wanted.” A viewer reported a sighting of him in Tijuana, where he was then taken into custody.

    Henderson will return to Nevada by Feb. 16 to face child abuse and assault charges.
