( Columbus, Ohio ) - The latest appeal by Ryan Widmer's attorneys has been turned down by the Ohio Supreme Court. The Hamilton Township man has been serving 15 to life ever since his murder conviction and sentencing in 2011. That came after two previous mistrials.
The latest request was to test Sarah Widmer's DNA for a rare condition. Ryan's attorneys had argued in previous trials that Sarah could've had a previously undetectable condition that led to her drowning death in the bathtub. The high court turned that request down on Wednesday by a vote of 5-2.
The Ohio Supreme Court denied Widmer's previous appeal involving the police seizure of the bathtub in 2008.
