Jury selection continues for Wyoming murder trial

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (AP) - Jury selection continues into a second day in Cheyenne for the first-degree murder trial of an elderly Missouri woman accused of killing her husband nearly 40 years ago in Wyoming.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys on Wednesday continued to question a pool of as many as 75 prospective jurors called up for the trial of 75-year-old Alice Uden, of Chadwick, Mo.

Prosecutors allege Uden shot her 25-year-old husband Ronald Holtz sometime between late 1974 and early 1975. Her attorneys plan to argue self-defense.

Authorities arrested both Uden and her current husband, 71-year-old Gerald Uden, in Missouri last fall. Gerald Uden since has pleaded guilty and begun serving a life sentence for killing his ex-wife and her two sons in central Wyoming in 1980.

Investigators have not linked the two cases.
