Posted: Updated:
ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

A Turner County woman is on trial for the second time, for her husband's murder.  

60-year-old Debra Pilkinton is accused of shooting and killing her husband, 62- year-old Morris Pilkinton, Junior. 

She went on trial in December, but it ended in a hung jury.  She did not take the stand. 

Authorities say deputies found the victim dead inside the couple's Sycamore home off Highway 32 last March from a gunshot wound to the head.

Pilkinton is charged with felony murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
