Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood says
investigators have found a convicted killer pardoned by former Gov. Haley Barbour.

Hood made the announcement Monday at a news conference in his office.

There was no warrant for Joseph Ozment's arrest, but he was served with a court order that requires him to check in every 24 hours with the Mississippi Department of Corrections and to appear in court Friday.

Hood says Ozment was in Wyoming with his girlfriend. Hood says tips led investigators to him.

Ozment was among 198 people pardoned by Barbour in his final days in office.
