NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man has been indicted and jailed more than two decades after the beating death of a 70-year-old Nashville woman.

John Steven Hernandez is being held without bond at the Metro Jail, facing a charge of first-degree murder.

Hernandez is accused of killing Annis Szekely in her Woodland Street home on March 7, 1993.

The victim was Hernandez's estranged mother-in-law at the time.

Police said Hernandez was confined in Texas on human trafficking charges when he was indicted last July in Szekely's death. Now, he has been extradited to Nashville.

He is due in court for an arraignment in the near future, police said.
