(a) When the return to this state of a person charged with a crime in this state is required, the prosecuting attorney of the judicial district in which the offense is committed, or the attorney general, shall present to the governor a written application for a requisition for the return of the person charged. In the application there shall be stated the name of the person so charged, the crime charged, the approximate time, place, and circumstances of its commission, the state in which the accused is believed to be, including the location of the accused therein at the time the application is made, and certifying that in the opinion of the said prosecuting attorney or the attorney general, the ends of justice require the arrest and return of the accused to this state for trial, and that the proceeding is not instituted to enforce a private claim.

(b) When the return to this state is required of a person who has been convicted of a crime in this state and has escaped from confinement or broken the terms of the person's bail, probation, or parole, the prosecuting attorney of the judicial district in which the offense was committed, or the attorney general, the parole or probation authority having jurisdiction over the person, or the commissioner of corrections shall present to the governor a written application for a requisition for the return of that person. In the application there shall be stated the name of the person, the crime for which the person was convicted, the circumstances of the escape from confinement or of the breach of the terms of bail, probation, or parole, and the state in which the person is believed to be, including the location of the person therein at the time the application is made.

(c) The application shall be verified by affidavit, shall be executed in duplicate and shall be accompanied by two certified copies of the indictment returned, or information and affidavit filed, or the complaint made to the judge or magistrate, stating the offense with which the accused is charged, or of the judgment of conviction or of the sentence. The attorney general or the prosecuting attorney, the parole or probation authority, or the commissioner of corrections may also attach further affidavits and other documents in duplicate to be submitted with the application. One copy of the application, with the action of the governor indicated by endorsement on the application, and one of the certified copies of the indictment, complaint, information and affidavits, or judgment or conviction or sentence shall be filed in the office of the governor to remain of record in that office.
