The New Hampshire woman prosecutors say lied about her role in the Rwanda genocide to obtain citizenship will get a second trial after a jury failed to reach a verdict in her case earlier this month.
Lawyers for 42-year-old Beatrice Munyenyezi (moon-yen-YEZ-ee) say she has been in custody since her indictment in June 2010 on two charges of lying on immigration and naturalization papers.
Prosecutors say she commanded extremist Hutu militia and ordered the rapes and killings of Tutsis in Butare in 1994.
The jury in her case deadlocked March 15 after four days of deliberations on evidence that spanned 12 days in federal court in Concord.
Prosecutors say the new trial date is Sept. 10.
