WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. - A man whose murder conviction was overturned by an appeals court was back in court Wednesday morning to find out if he would face a jury again.

Prosecutors are considering re-trying Larkin on second degree murder charges.
The judge will consider if some of the evidence used by a witness, who the appeals court said could not testify, would be allowed in a new trial.
Larkin will go back to court in December. In the meantime, he is free on bond.
