The retrial of a western Kentucky man on charges of murder and arson has begun in Trigg County.

George Luna is charged in the 2007 death of Debra Hendrickson in Marshall County. He was previously convicted on both charges, but the state Supreme Court ordered a retrial due to an issue with a juror.

The Paducah Sun reports a new jury was seated Monday in less than four hours and began hearing testimony. The trial was moved to Trigg County after an impartial jury could not be seated in Marshall County.

Testimony in the case was expected to continue on Tuesday.
