Wirt County man faces retrial Monday
(WOUB) - An Elizabeth man accused of murdering his nephew and his nephew's girlfriend nearly two years ago is scheduled to go on trial for the second time Monday.

A Wood County jury couldn't reach a verdict in 46 year old Roger Flinn's first trial last December. Flinn is accused of shooting Russell Ray Eastham and Sylvia L. Fittro at their Wirt County home April 1, 2005.

Flinn's trial was moved to Wood County because of the possible effect of pretrial publicity on potential jurors.
