David Swift was extradited back to Dyer County to face charges of first-degree murder in the death of his late wife Karen Swift.

David will face arraignment in a Dyersburg courtroom today.

David Swift was arrested near Birmingham, Alabama on Monday after a Dyer County Grand Jury indicted him in the 2011 murder of his wife, Karen Swift.

The accused waived his rights to an extradition hearing and was then immediately transported back to Dyer County.

Swift will appear before Judge Mark Hayes on Wednesday (today) to be arraigned on the premeditated first degree murder charge.

Swift remains in the Dyer County Jail.
