Fresno County Sheriff's deputies say they've re-arrested a murder suspect.

This time around, prosecutors have actually filed a murder case against 57-year-old Tom Woodall.

Deputies found him near a dead body, not far from an illegal marijuana grow in the Miramonte area last weekend. They arrested Woodall on murder charges but had to release him Tuesday when prosecutors chose not to file charges.

Deputies said they needed to find a witness to the crime. When prosecutors decided they had enough evidence to file charges Friday, deputies arrested Woodall again.
