Eugene Ricky Pulley was arrested in Lebanon, Virginia Tuesday night, and was extradited to Caswell County, North Carolina yesterday afternoon.
Pulley's charged with killing his 37-year-old wife, Patty Jo Pulley, who disappeared in May of 1999.
Her body was found under a Caswell County bridge in December.
It was a discovery that apparently helped bring about Pulley's arrest.

"He's obviously raising the confidence of his people. He obviously exorting them to do more, and whether this is a signal of impending attack or not is something we're looking at."
THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IS USING THESE MESSAGES TO DRAW A LINE FROM BIN LADEN TO SADDAM. BUT THOSE AGAINST WAR AREN'T CONNECTING THE DOTS. THE LAST HOPE FOR AN ATTACK WITH FULL U-N SUPPORT COULD COME IN FRIDAY'S INSPECTION REPORT. YESTERDAY INSPECTORS DETERMINED IRAQ 'IS' IN POSSESSION OF ILLEGAL WEAPONS.. SPECIFICALLY A TYPE OF MISSILE THAT EXCEEDS THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE RANGE. STILL EVEN THAT MAY NOT CHANGE THE MINDS OF THOSE COUNTRIES AGAINST A WAR IN IRAQ.

"I've sent men into war, I've seen friends die in war, nobody wants war. But sometimes it's necessary when you need it to maintain international order."
AND TO MAINTAIN THAT INTERNATIONAL ORDER... THE U-S STANDS READY IN THE PERSIAN GULF.
