Jury selection is expected to begin Tuesday in the murder retrial of a man accused of the Christmas Eve 2006 killing of a rival gang member at the Boynton Beach mall.

Wilson Pierre was convicted in 2009 of 24-year-old Berno Charlemond’s murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison.

His conviction was later overturned when an appellate court ruled the first jury received an erroneous deliberation instruction on a lesser included charge of manslaughter.

The case was headed to retrial last year but stalled when a couple of judges stepped down from the case.

Defense attorney Peter Grable, who represented Pierre during the first trial, is also now off the case, and attorney Gerald Saleno will now represent Pierre in the case to be tried before Circuit Judge Dina Keever.
