CBS News has learned the Rhode Island Attorney General's office will announce more charges and begin extradition proceedings early this week for Philip Markoff, the 23-year-old medical student alleged to have committed a string of crimes against women after meeting them through the online classified site, Craigslist.

Markoff is expected to be charged with the robbery of a stripper who was held at gunpoint in a Warwick, Rhode Island motel room. Police have reported that fingerprints in the hotel room matched Markoff's, reportsCBS News' Fred Balboni.

Markoff is currently being held in a Boston jail, charged with the April 14 murder of 25-year-old Julissa Brisman, an erotic masseuse beaten and shot to death in a Boston hotel room, as well as the robbery of another masseuse he met four days earlier in a different hotel.
