BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The jury selection for Leslie Chance's retrial began Monday morning.

Chance, a former elementary school teacher, is charged with the 2013 murder of her own husband, Todd Chance. She was arrested after his body was found shot in an almond orchard 11 miles from their home. She was first arrested after his body was found, but was released days later.

She faces charges of first-degree murder and, if convcited, could face up to life in prison.

Chance's first trial ended back in June when the public defender's office declared a conflict of interest in representing her.

Chance has denied any involvement in the killing of her husband.
