The trial is under way for a Mundelein woman accused of attacking her former husband and his new wife with a sledgehammer.

It happened at a home in suburban Lincolnshire back in 2003.

Sandra Rogers was charged and took a plea deal the following year. But last year a judge ordered a trial, saying Rogers was tricked into admitting her role in the crime.

Defense attorneys claim the boyfriend of Rogers daughter carried out the attacks.

Both victims survived.
