MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

A Moss Point man who is suspected of beating a convenience store clerk and killing a customer in 2001 has been extradited to Arizona. According to officials, Michael Cornell Moye, 35, is facing charges of first degree murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Moye was arrested at a Jackson County shipyard back in July after he was linked to the 13-year-old crime through DNA analysis.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Moye and two other suspects entered a Dollar Store on June 16, 2001, attacked the clerk and then shot Jaime Olivera-Perez. The case went cold, but the investigation was renewed in 2012. That is when Moye was identified as a suspect and later arrested.

According to an old WLOX News story, Moye was arrested in 2002 for the murder of a Moss Point teen. Jackson County Sheriff's Department also confirmed Moye was arrested in 2009 for armed robbery, burglary and felony evasion.

Moye is currently being held at the Maricopa County Jail in Phoenix, AZ.

If you have any information about the murder, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898.
