Prosecutors say they're waiting on DNA test results from the state crime lab in their case against Andy Dwight Pierce.
Pierce was charged with the bludgeoning death of Annie Ruth Brooks inside her Geneva home in May 1988.
Mrs. Brooks had hired pierce to do work around her house.
Pierce was eventually convicted of capital murder, and sentenced to die.
But last year, the Alabama State Supreme Court overturned that conviction and ordered a new trial.
The court said a key prosecution witness in the case had improper close and continual contact with the sequestered jury. A new trial date has not been set.
