Wal-Mart Abduction

Suspect in abduction extradited from Arizona to Texas

A man accused of abducting and killing a Wal-Mart clerk in east Texas after her shift ended is back in Texas after being extradited from Arizona.

Twenty-four-year-old Johnny Lee Williams of Tyler, Texas, is being held in the Smith County Jail in the slaying of 19-year-old Megan Holden. A store surveillance video shows Holden being abducted from the Wal-Mart parking lot on January 19th. Williams was arrested two days later at a Willcox, Arizona, hospital where he sought treatment for a gunshot wound allegedly sustained during a holdup. Holden's body was discovered the same day along a road almost 400 miles from Tyler. Williams has been charged with aggravated kidnapping. Prosecutors say they'll also pursue a capital murder charge.

 Bond is one million dollars. The judge has issued a gag order in the case.
