Suspect in Phoenix cold case brought back to state

PHOENIX -- A suspect in a fatal shooting at a Phoenix discount store 13 years ago has been extradited from Mississippi, where he was arrested last month.

Phoenix police said 35-year-old Michael C. Moye was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on Thursday.

He had been held on a homicide warrant in Moss Point, Mississippi by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office as he awaited extradition.

Police said Moye is believed to be one of the three men who entered a Dollar Store in west Phoenix on June 16, 2001.

The store clerk was assaulted and a customer, 41-year-old Jaime Olivera-Perez, was fatally shot.

Moye was identified as a suspect in 2012. The other two suspects remained unknown.
