Jury deliberations have begun in the retrial of a Henrico County man accused of killing a Fredericksburg woman in 2007.
The case went to the jury Thursday and deliberations were scheduled to resume Friday.
Thirty-year-old Wyatt Ward Hollar is accused of killing Danielle Wilson. His previous second-degree murder conviction was thrown out because jurors listened to a taped interview that was not played in court.
State Department of Forensic Science supervisors testified Wednesday that forensic tests used in the first trial were incomplete, did not follow procedure and had errors. The evidence was key in determining whether Wilson committed suicide or was shot by Hollar, who denied any role in the death.
