Lawrence County, Alabama --  An Alabama man faces a hearing Tuesday so he can be sent back to Georgia to be tried for the murder of a Sumter County woman.  

Johnny Ray Cochran was stopped on an Alabama Highway in September and arrested for the death of Melony Strickland.

Cochran was considered a suspect shortly after Strickland was found shot to death in her Middle River Road home.

Cochran is fighting the extradition. Tomorrow's hearing will be held in Lawrence County, Alabama.
