Jury selection started Friday in Susan Wright's punishment trial. It's her second trial and it could lead to a reduced sentence. Susan Wright is currently serving a 25-year sentence for the 2003 murder of her husband Jeffrey. She stabbed him nearly 200 times. Wright was granted a new punishment trial when a new lawyer argued that Wright suffered from battered woman's syndrome, but the testimony was allowed at her trial.

Testimony in the re-trial is expected to start on Monday.
