PARAGOULD, AR - A man once convicted in the death of a two-year-old girl is being retried in Greene County this week.

David Houston Reagan, 49, was convicted of first degree murder in 1990 for the slaying of Sarah Blinkard, but the conviction was overturned by a federal court, due to a jury's error.

The re-trial began yesterday in Paragould, on a change of venue.
