The long-awaited re-trial of a man accused of murder and arson in Marshall County will be held in Trigg County.
WPSD TV reports the trial of George Luna will be held in Trigg after a jury couldn’t be seated in Marshall. Luna is accused of murdering Debbie Hendrickson in 2007, with a jury convicting and sentencing him to life in prison in 2008.
The Supreme Court overturned that decision in 2010 and ordered a new trial on the grounds that jury selection wasn’t done properly the first time around. Judge Dennis Foust attempted to seat another jury last month out of a pool of 82, but had to give up and order a change of location when most candidates admitted they had prior knowledge of the case.
