Americus teen faces another trial

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Americus teen found not guilty of murder is on trial again in the same case, this time charged with aggravated assault.  

18-year-old Xavier Warren was acquitted of murdering Ernest Jones during an attempted robbery in his home in November 2007.

The jury convicted him on a burglary charge. They could not reach a verdict on aggravated assault charges, so prosecutors are retrying him.

Lawyers gave opening statements Monday. The trial could last several days.
