LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Columbia man accused of killing a woman in Lamar County before fleeing to Florida has waived extradition and will be brought back to Mississippi.

Authorities started searching for Ace Joe Mallard after a warrant was issued for his arrest in the murder of a 37-year-old Tracy Brown.

Mallard, 46, was arrested Saturday afternoon by Florida Highway Patrol.

Brown was found shot to death in a home on Meredith Circle around 8 a.m. Saturday, Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said.

“We received a 911 call that some family members had found a family member deceased in a residence,” said Rigel. “We got there, and we found the deceased female.”

Rigel did not say when Mallard will be extradited to Mississippi.
