POTOSI - Martin Gorse will go to trial again on murder charges Feb. 13-14 in Washington County.

He is charged in Washington County with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in connection with the shooting of his 31-year-old son-in-law, Ronald Coleman Jr.

Gorse’s first trial, held April 29-30, ended in a mistrial due to a hung jury. During the trial, he and his daughter shared differing versions of what led to the shooting that day. Gorse said it was self defense.
