MARTINEZ (BCN) - Opening statements are scheduled to begin Monday in the retrial of a Vallejo woman charged with killing her son's father.
Jennell Wright, 42, was tried last year for murder of Andrew Le'Mar Green, who was shot dead in a Pittsburg apartment complex on Feb. 23, 2010.
However, the trial ended in a mistrial after the jury deadlocked on a murder charge, according to attorneys.
At issue for the jury was whether Wright intentionally killed her ex-boyfriend, who fathered her toddler, that night and whether the shooting was planned, attorneys said.
Attorneys attempted to address those lingering questions by delivering a rare second round of closing arguments, to no avail.
Opening statements were scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
