Jury selection for the retrial in Alabama's gambling corruption case starts Monday after a one-week delay caused by the death of one of the defendants.

Former Legislative Bill writer Ray Crosby was found dead in his Montgomery home on January 29. Jury selection was supposed to start the next morning, but U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson delayed it because of the death.

An autopsy report listed Crosby's death as natural from hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

Six defendants are scheduled for retrial on bribery and conspiracy charges.
