Man who led police on chase appears in Memphis courtroom

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - The man who led police on a multi-state chase last week will soon be heading back to Alabama.

Justin Denson was in a Memphis courtroom Monday morning signing extradition papers.

Denson led police on a pursuit between Byhalia and Olive Branch, Mississippi after a fugitive task force received word Denson was possibly in the area.

Denson was on the run from murder charges in Gadsden, Alabama.  He is accused of killing his mother.
