BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — After days of testimony closing arguments for the Leslie Chance retrial are expected to begin this week.

Chance, a former elementary school principal, is on trial for the 2013 murder of her husband Todd Chance.

Back in June of 2019, her case ended in a mistrial when the public defender's office declared a conflict of interest in representing her.

During the course of the re-trial which began in December, several witnesses and family members have been called to the stand. She is facing a charge of first-degree murder.
