The ex-wife accused of hiring someone to kill Tucson businessman Gary Triano was back in court.

A judge Wednesday granted a motion from the prosecution to provide more handwriting samples.

Phillips is accused of paying Ronald young to blow up Triano's car with him inside. Young was convicted this year.

Phillips trial is set for January 10.


Opening statements and testimony Wednesday in the re-trial of former Pima County Deputy Michael Canizales. He's accused of raping a former co-worker.

His original trial ended five hours into jury deliberations when a juror admitted she'd once been raped.

During jury selection, that woman lied and said she had not, so the judge declared a mistrial.
