DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- China Arnold, the Ohio woman accused of microwaving her 3-week-old daughter to death in 2005, faces a retrial Monday, officials said.

Arnold, 28, is charged with the aggravated murder of her daughter Paris Talley. She could receive the death penalty if convicted, the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News reported Sunday.

The newspaper reported that jury selection will begin Monday and likely last several days. Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman, appointed to the bench last year by Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, will preside over the case.

Arnold's first trial was tossed after Judge John Kessler privately heard testimony from a juvenile who said he was at the apartment complex when the alleged incident occurred.
