TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Opening arguments are scheduled Wednesday morning in the second murder trial of a former Tucson Fire Department captain accused of killing his ex-wife and two others.

A jury was chosen Tuesday in Pima County Superior Court.

Jurors failed to reach a verdict last November for David Watson, who faces two counts of first-degree murder and one of second-degree murder in the separate cold-case deaths of ex-wife Linda Watson, her mother and her mother’s friend.

Prosecutors say Watson killed Linda Watson during a custody battle. Her remains were found in the desert in 2003, but weren’t identified until 2011.

David Watson is accused of fatally shooting his former mother-in-law, Marilyn Cox, and her friend, Renee Farnsworth, in 2003 following a legal battle over visitation rights involving her granddaughter.
