PRINCETON (WVVA) - A Princeton man accused of sexual abuse and possession of child pornography will have a retrial next month.

A mistrial was declared last week in the case against 40-year old John Spaulding after a juror experienced anxiety and chest pains during deliberations.

Spaulding  faces a 57-count indictment -- six counts of sexual abuse involving a child under the age of twelve, one count of sexual assault involving a child under the age of sixteen and 50 counts of child pornography.

The retrial is set for March 31.
