Scott Co. Man Faces Second Trial in Parents' Death

By Associated Press | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A Scott County man is facing his second trial in the 2007 shooting death of his parents, after the first trial ended in a mistrial.

The Herald-Leader reports jury selection began Monday in Scott County, in the trial of 43-year-old James Anthony Gray, who is facing two counts of murder and tampering with physical evidence.

James and Vivian Gray were found shot in the head in their northern Scott County home in 2007, and investigators said it did not appear to have been a break-in because no valuables were removed.

In the first trial last year, the jury deliberated for more than 10 hours before deciding that they could not reach a unanimous decision. Gray repeatedly testified that he did not commit the crime.
