Case Moves Forward Again For Murder Suspect

A high-profile murder case was back in the courtroom on Monday morning.

Roger McBeath had a status hearing in Scott County.

A jury found McBeath guilty of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Ashley Lyons, back in 2004.

Now the case is starting all over, after the state's high court granted McBeath a new trial. It is scheduled to begin in April.
