    I caught the tail end of the trial..not enough to really catch enough of the story though. Is the jury still deliberating? I quit watching and took a nap around 1 today, so I don't know.

    Judge just declared a mistrial. They still couldn't reach a verdict after 12 1/2 hours.

    A Knox County woman who was convicted in the death of one of her two deceased husbands has been released from custody. In April, Judge Paul Summers tossed the first-degree murder conviction in Leath's second husband's death and awarded her a new trial because of the drug use of the Knox County judge that presided over the trial.

    Update -
    "A judge stopped just short of ruling on a motion that hadn't even been filed, but he was pretty clear this week on his preference on the locale from which citizens asked to judge a suspected black widow should come - Knox County."
    Snip
    "I don't see any reason we can't pick a jury in Knox County, Tenn.," Summers said Monday. "I plan to try this case in Knox County."

    He quickly added that he would still entertain the defense motion if it's filed."

    Summers set a May 2, 2017, trial date.

    Evidence takes center stage in day three of Knoxville ‘Black Widow’ retrial

    http://wate.com/2017/05/03/evidence...n-day-three-of-knoxville-black-widow-retrial/

    the article makes no mention about the lost evidence, or if it was located

    Lauren Davis‏Verified account @WVLTLauren 23hours ago

    JUST IN: The state in the Leath trial has lost a very significant piece of evidence. They found one part and are looking for the other

    DEVELOPING: The state in the Leath case is "on their hands and knees looking" for a key piece of evidence. Meanwhile, Raynella is smiling.

    Raynella Leath trial resumes with no mention of lost evidence. Aaron Allen is the 4th witness to take the stand today.
