Retrial underway for Columbus man accused of killing girlfriend

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A retrial is underway in Columbus in the case of a man accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend in the head.

Last December, a mistrial was declared in the murder trial of Vashon Walker after a video recording of the suspect's interview with police on the day of the murder was played and the part containing his criminal history was supposed to be muted.

Unfortunately, the prosecution missed their cue to stop the video. Walker claims an intruder was responsible for the death of his girlfriend in June 2014.
