New trial to begin in Baltimore in killing of Monroe teen

The family of slain Monroe teen Phylicia Barnes is bracing for a second grueling trial more than a year after a Baltimore judge tossed out a murder conviction of the man known to have last seen her. Michael Johnson, 30, will get another chance to plead his innocence starting April 28, when he’s scheduled to return to court to begin a new trial on second-degree murder charges for the death of the 16-year-old honor student.
