ELKADER, Iowa (AP) - Trial has begun for a northeastern Iowa woman accused of killing her husband a decade ago.

The first-degree murder trial of Revette Sauser, 52, of Ryan, began this week, television station KCRG reported. She’s accused of fatally shooting 59-year-old Terry Sauser in their Ryan home in April 2011.

The following year, Revette Sauser pleaded guilty to kidnapping, voluntary manslaughter and going armed with intent in a deal with prosecutors, and was sentenced to 40 years in prison. She had served nine of those years when the Iowa Supreme Court sent her case back to the trial court, saying there was no basis for the kidnapping charge.

Her trial is being held in Clayton County.
