Local murder-for-hire trial possibly delayed

RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - The capital murder retrial of Lisa Graham's murder-for-hire case set to begin Monday could possibly be delayed.

Deputy district attorney Buster Landreau confirms to News Leader 9 that defense attorneys are filing a motion to allow a higher court to review a lower court's ruling.

The court would review Lee County Judge Jacob Walker's recent ruling issued in which he refused to dismiss the case based on double jeopardy.

The next step is for the judge to decide on whether to delay the case.
