Jury picked in 3rd trial of man charged in slaying

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Attorneys have selected a jury for the third trial of a north Alabama man accused of killing a doctor's wife 10 years ago.

The jury picked Friday consisted of 18 people - 12 actual jurors and six alternates. The judge said they would hear opening arguments at 9 a.m. Monday.

Daniel Wade Moore is charged with capital murder in the death of Karen Tipton, who was found stabbed to death and slashed in her home in Decatur in 1999.

A jury convicted Moore in 2002 and a judge sentenced him to death. That case was overturned because of misconduct by prosecutors, and Moore won a new trial.

The second trial ended in a hung jury last year.
