Dayton, Ohio (AP) -- Testimony was set to begin in the retrial of a woman accused of killing her month-old daughter by burning her in a microwave oven.
Opening statements were scheduled Monday in the case of 28-year-old China Arnold, who is charged with aggravated murder in the 2005 death of her daughter, Paris Talley.
Arnold could face the death penalty if convicted. She has pleaded not guilty.
An eight-woman, four-man jury was seated Friday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
Judge John Kessler declared a mistrial February 11th after he privately heard testimony from a juvenile who said he was at Arnold's apartment complex on the night the baby died. The judge declared the mistrial just as closing arguments were to begin. He did not reveal what the juvenile said.
