A Rhea County, Tennessee, man charged in the August death of a Bradley County woman will be returned to Tennessee next week from a Douglas County, Kansas, jail to face charges of murder and abuse of a corpse.

Guy William O'Connell, 44, is still being held in the Douglas County Jail on a fugitive-from-justice warrant stemming from an indictment issued by the Rhea County grand jury in October, authorities said, but he'll be back in Tennessee sometime after the New Year's holiday weekend.

O'Connell is accused in the death of 34-year-old Amber Renee Monday of Bradley County.

O'Connell initially waived his extradition, then withdrew his waiver, then in another hearing in Kansas earlier this month decided not to fight extradition to Tennessee to face the charges after all, 12th Judicial District Attorney General Mike Taylor said.
