According to Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons, deputies flew to Arizona on Thursday to escort 30-year-old Justin Wayne Green back to Clay County.

Green is charged with murder for the shooting death of another man between 5 and 7 years ago.

Authorities said Green shot the victim because the man did not believe in God.

Clay County authorities found the body buried in a shallow grave, behind a home south of Petrolia back on February 8th after an informant tipped them off.

Green's mother, Terri Janiece Green, was also arrested in Arizona, but she is refusing to waive extradition.

Terri green is charged with tampering with evidence.

Due to the fact she's refusing to waive extradition, authorities in Arizona will hold a hearing within the next 30 days.

Justin Green's sister and another woman have also been charged with tampering with evidence in this case
