New trial scheduled for former Tucson fire captain accused of murder

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A new trial has been scheduled for the former Tucson fire captain accused of killing three women.

David Watson is accused of killing his ex-wife, her mother and a neighbor more than 10 years ago.

His first trial ended with a hung jury nearly two weeks ago.

The judge gave the jury a second chance to come to a decision, but they didn't take him up on his offer.

On Friday, a new trial date was scheduled for Jan. 24.

The jury pool will include more than 200 people.
