JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The man accused of murdering an elderly Clinton woman last year is back in Mississippi. 

James Hutto was extradited to Mississippi from Alabama Monday and is being held in the Hinds County Jail. 

Hutto faces capital murder charges in the death of 81-year-old Ethel Simpson. 

Simpson's body was found in Edwards on a hog farm after she went missing on September 13, 2010. 

Alabama is allowing the Mississippi to prosecute Hutto before pursuing charges against him for crimes committed there.
