ODESSA - The man accused of murdering a woman two decades ago was back in court on Thursday.

A mistrial was declared in the case earlier this month after attorneys found out that a seated juror could not write or read in English.

Wells is accused of murdering Virginia Washelesky 20 years ago.

DNA evidence linked him to the crime in 2004.

District Attorney Bobby Bland says they'll retry wells in a few weeks.
