MARSHFIELD, Mo. -- A second trial is to begin today in Webster County for a woman accused of second-degree murder in Webster County.

After her first trial ended in a hung jury on Aug. 2, April Guy returns to the Marshfield courthouse for the second round of the second-degree murder case.

Guy is accused in the slaying of Russell A. Lawson, who was found dead in his home in Rogersville on Oct. 15, 2012. Court documents issued at the time said she had been located in Springfield with Lawson's vehicle and cell phone a couple of days after he was thought to have died.

Officers described the relationship between Guy and Lawson as "volatile, as arguing and physical confrontation appears to be the norm between the two of them," according to court documents. Police say according to witnesses, Guy and Lawson had been arguing and Lawson told that witness, "if I show up dead, make sure you have police talk to April."

Guy pleaded not guilty to the crime.
