Wheat in Court

After nearly six years, an accused murderer will have his day in court.

The capital murder trial for 38-year-old Moses Wheat, Junior is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Wheat is accused of killing 73-year-old Gladys Ronning in her Huntsville home in 1999.

She was stabbed 41 times and Wheat's fingerprints were found at the scene.

Wheat’s trial was postponed in November because of a conflict with the Thanksgiving holiday.

It was postponed again in December because a state pathologist who conducted the autopsy and a DNA expert were not available to testify.
