New Trial Begins for Gretna Man Accused of Stabbing Security Officer

Byron Clements

Pittsylvania Co., VA - A Pittsylvania County man charged with stabbing a security officer is back in court.

Forty-eight-year-old Byron Clements was tried last year on one count of malicious wounding after police say he attacked the officer at a social security office.

That trial ended in a hung jury.

Wednesday was day one of what officials say will be a two day trial.

Clements' attorney says his client has struggled with psychiatric issues.
