MURDER RE-TRIAL: Huser Jury Selected
After four days, a jury has been seated in the trial of an Ankeny man accused of hiring a hit-man to kill his ex-wife’s lover.
Vernon Huser was arrested and convicted of first degree murder for the crime in October of 2010.
The 66-year-old was sentenced to life in prison.
However, the Iowa Court of Appeals granted Huser a new trial in 2011 because they ruled his conviction was based on hearsay testimony.
Opening statements will begin Friday morning.
