JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A woman who is scheduled to go on trial for murder in Jackson County on Monday is sitting in a Texas jail.

According to KRGV in Rio Grande Valley, TX, Krystal Kersey was arrested in Starr County on Friday just near the Mexican border. Authorities there say during a routine traffic stop, they discovered her murder warrant here in Mississippi.

Kersey is charged with deliberate design murder, accused of intentionally running over and killing her husband, Justin Stork, at an apartment complex in June of 2013. Kersey is awaiting extradition to Mississippi.

Authorities say she was traveling with her two children, who have been taken into the custody of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

We're trying to contact the Jackson County District Attorney's Office to see how this will affect the trial scheduled for this week.
