15 years, 4 trials: NY man tried for wife's murder again

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Calvin Harris will go on trial for murder in upstate New York for the fourth time since his estranged wife disappeared in September 2001.

Prosecutors argue Calvin Harris killed 35-year-old Michele Harris when she came home to the Southern Tier estate they still shared with their four young children. He was wealthy from his family's car dealerships and court papers say he told people she would not get half his business. Defense lawyers claim authorities overlooked likely suspects she met during the freewheeling life she led as her marriage broke up.

Jury selection for the fourth trial is scheduled to start Monday in a court in Schoharie, New York.
