MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBS 2) — It’s back to the beginning Monday in the case of Long Island’s alleged “hit mom.”

Jury selection was to begin in the retrial of Susan Williams, the Garden City woman accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill her estranged husband.

The first case was declared a mistrial on Friday, after her attorney mistakenly signed a document allowing prosecutors to play jurors a tape containing potentially damaging evidence.

Williams faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
