The murder trial of Echuca woman Tracey Kerr will start in Melbourne Supreme Court on April 28.
The original trial, which started on October 21 last year, was in its final days when Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth declared a mistrial due to a legal technicality.
The trial is expected to take two weeks, with about 15 witnesses to be called again and Justice Hollingworth presiding.
Kerr, 41, is accused of the stabbing murder of Echuca man Doug Barrett, 65, at his Pascoe St home in Echuca on May 26, 2012.
She has pleaded not guilty, claiming defensive homicide due to attempted rape.
Kerr is being represented by defence attorney Philip Skehan, while the Crown prosecutor is Peter Rose.
