JSU murder suspect returned to Alabama

CALHOUN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - A man accused of killing a Jacksonville State University student is back in Alabama to face charges.

Chen Shi now sits in the Calhoun County Jail. He was arrested by U.S. Marshals after he was discovered working at a restaurant in Minnesota.

Chen was an early suspect in the 1996 killing of Zihui Liu, but police did not have enough evidence to charge him.

After they released him, Chen left the state.
