Jury rejects insanity claim in murder of Melinda Yager

The 12 jurors and two alternates who listened to weeks of testimony in the trial of Nathan Yager came together on March 20 to deliver a verdict of guilty.

Yager had pleaded not guilty to second degree murder by reason of insanity.

Yager's retrial begins Tuesday

It's now been seven years since the brutal slaying of Melinda Tackett Yager in Paonia, and while her estranged husband has been jailed since her death, his conviction is still up in the air.

Yager was convicted of second degree murder following a jury trial in November 2012, but won an appeal when his attorney successfully argued that the trial court erroneously refused to instruct the jury on the defense of insanity.
