Second trial in 2007 Va. killing

By the Associated Press

A former Chesapeake high school administrator accused of killing his wife is going on trial for a second time.

Wesley Earnest's second trial is scheduled to begin Monday in Amherst County.

However, the jury will be comprised of Nelson County residents. The trial was moved from Bedford County because of publicity surrounding the case.

Earnest was convicted in April in the 2007 shooting death of Jocelyn Earnest. A Bedford County judge threw out the conviction in July because jurors had admitted they saw Jocelyn Earnest's journals.

Jocelyn Earnest graduated from West Virginia University and was a member of the Mountaineer women's basketball team.
