BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The trial for a Baton Rouge woman accused of killing her ex-husband in their million-dollar home back in 2004 is scheduled to begin Monday morning. It is one of the longest pending murder cases in the 19th District Court.
Police said Alan Waters was shot and killed as he stepped out of the shower in May 2004. His ex-wife, Jan Waters, is accused of being the person who fired the deadly shots. Authorities said the father of two was shot after a long-running custody battle and dispute over money.
District Attorney Hillar Moore said the Waters children will most likely be witnesses in the trial, which is set to begin at 9:3 a.m.
"It comes down to those two children," said Moore. "They've lost one parent and now have the possibility of losing their mother. The father's dead and now they're left behind."
Waters' trail was postponed several times. Oct. 25th will be her 10th scheduled trial date. Moore said the case has been lingering for so many years because of issues with some law enforcement personnel at the time. The lead detective on the case is now in prison, convicted in an unrelated case.
Waters is counseled by Attorney Marcie Blaize, who said she and her client have waited a long time for the trial to begin. Waters has maintained her innocence from the beginning. She said she was on her way to New Orleans and in a Kenner hotel and restaurant during the time of her ex-husband's murder.
Moore said there are lot of things the prosecution now know that it was unaware of when the murder first occurred. He said the prosecution's case has gotten stronger.
"We just gave this case a fresh look with fresh eyes. We had some forensic investigators look at it. Met again with the sheriff's office, assigned a different trial experience prosecutor to the case and we're at the point now where we're ready for trial," he explained.
