HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The man accused of killing a 91-year-old Huntsville woman will appear in court in September.

A Madison County judge signed an order calling for the transport of John Clayton Owens, Jr from Kilby Correctional Facility to the Metro Jail. He is currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated crime.

Owens is accused of killing Doris Richardson in 2011. The elderly woman was found dead in her home on Bide-A-Wee drive in Huntsville.

Investigators say Owens also burglarized Richardson's home.

Owens will be arraigned for capital murder on September 27. A hearing date is expected to be set during that hearing.
