CLAYTON COUNTY, Iowa (KCRG) - A trial is now underway for a woman, who once pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the death of her husband.

Revette Sauser, 52, faces a first degree murder charge. She is accused of shooting and killing her husband Terry in their home in Ryan, Iowa, in April 2011.

In 2012, Sauser accepted a plea deal on charges including kidnapping and manslaughter.

She served nine of her 40 years in prison before the Supreme Court sent her case back for a trial, saying there was no factual basis for the kidnapping charge.

Her current trial is in Clayton County.
