Jury selection started this week in the second retrial of Jonathan Doody. He is the man charged in the 1991 killing of nine people at a West Valley Buddhist temple. Doody was originally convicted in 1993, but an appeals court threw that conviction out, ruling his confession had been coerced.

A retrial ended last month in a mistrial. Melissa Ho is an attorney with the firm Polsinelli and used to be a prosecutor in the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. She said the jury selection process is different in a retrial, or a re-retrial.
