SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

WLOX News has learned a murder suspect is being extradited to Mississippi. Krystal Kersey was set to go on trial for the murder of her husband Wednesday, but she remains in custody in Texas.

She was arrested on Oct. 10, in Starr County, TX, near the Mexican border after a traffic stop turned up her murder warrant.

Judge Dale Harkey has issued a bench warrant for Kersey, and scheduled a status hearing for Oct. 30.

Kersey is charged with deliberate design murder. She is accused of intentionally running over and killing her husband, Justin Stork, at an apartment complex in June of last year.
