MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A new trial is underway for an ex-physician convicted in a murder-for-hire scheme.

Multiple media outlets report that Montgomery County Deputy District Attorneys Scott Green, Kenneth Gibbs and Chris Moore began prosecuting David Nash on Tuesday, more than a year after he was sentenced to life in prison.

In January 2014, Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Charles Price ordered that a new trial take place because he said two jurors lied when the defense was selecting a panel.

Nash was convicted of capital murder in the death of Ralph McNeil, an animal trapper also known as the “Critter Man.” Authorities have said Nash’s girlfriend was involved in a custody dispute with McNeil, her ex-boyfriend, which prompted the two to pay a pair of cousins approximately $9,000 to kill the man.
