Trial to begin Monday for Columbia woman charged in 2017 death of her husband

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in Columbia in a high-profile murder trial involving the 2017 death of a snake breeder.

Lynlee Renick is charged with first degree murder for the death of her husband, Ben. He was shot to death at his Montgomery County farm.

A second suspect, Michael Humphrey of Jefferson City, was convicted of murder in October.

Prosecutors have said that Humphrey drove Lynlee Renick to the farm, where the murder happened. Our news partner ABC-17 has reported that Ben Renick was shot eight times: four to the back, two to the face and two to the arm.

Investigators originally thought a snake may have killed him.
