The re-trial of a man accused of killing his pregnant wife starts Monday.

Seth Techel’s second murder trial is being held in Mount Pleasant. Techel is charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of his wife, Lisa, at their home in Agency in May of 2012. He’s also charged with non-consensual termination of a pregnancy.

Techel’s first trial in March ended with a hung jury. In that case, prosecutors said he killed Lisa so he could carry on an affair with a co-worker.

Techel claimed his wife was shot by neighbor with mental problems.
