Gov. Mary Fallin said Wednesday that she would speed up the extradition process for Baby Veronica's biological father to South Carolina if he won't allow the adoptive parents to visit the girl.

Matt and Melanie Capobianco, the 3-year-old's adoptive parents, said during a news conference Wednesday in downtown Tulsa that Dusten Brown, the girl's biological father, turned down a request to visit Veronica after they arrived in Oklahoma late Tuesday.

“Mr. and Mrs. Capobianco deserve an opportunity to meet with their adopted daughter," the governor said. "They also deserve the chance to meet with Mr. Brown and put an end to this conflict."
