Police have charged a mother and her son with capital murder in the killing of a Corinth woman a year ago.
Billy Doyle Ray was arrested at his home in Dothan on Friday. Bond was denied for the 24-year-old Ray during his arraignment in city court.
His mother, 50-year-old Emily Jackson, is being held by police in Gulf County, Florida, awaiting extradition.
They are accused in the March 2002 robbery and stabbing death of 54-year-old Patricia Billiot.
Corinth Police Chief Ned Cregeen says information from Alabama police led them to the suspects who were apparently friends of the victim.
Cregeen says he believes robbery was the motive. About $5,000 in cash was taken from Billiot's home.
Police say Billiot had been stabbed repeatedly and her throat was cut.
Ray is being held in the Corinth City Jail. A preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 4.
