Jurors will be heading back into the courtroom this week for Vernon Huser’s retrial.

Huser is accused of hiring a hit man to kill his ex-wife’s lover, Lance Morningstar.  Huser was charged with first-degree murder for Morningstar’s death back in 2004.

Huser was convicted in 2010 but the Iowa Court of Appeals ruled that some of the testimony in the first trial was hearsay.

The retrial will resume Monday after a five-day recess.
