RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas (AP) - A woman set for trial Monday in Mississippi on a charge of murdering her husband has been arrested in far South Texas near the Texas-Mexico border.

Krystal Kersey is held in Rio Grande City in Starr County awaiting extradition to Mississippi after her arrest following a traffic stop Friday. Authorities say her 3-year-old and 18-month-old children were with her.

Television station KRGV reports (https://bit.ly/1tSI6ej ) they’re now in the temporary care of Texas officials.

Kersey was free on $100,000 bond and facing trial for the 2013 slaying of her husband of two months, 24-year-old Justin Stork, in Jackson County, Mississippi.

She’s accused of running him down with her car between two apartment buildings.

The Jackson County District Attorney’s office says she had so far made all of her scheduled court appearances.
