DOCTOR SLAIN-DNA
Former Ohio cop freed from prison after 15 years in ex-wife's can stay free, for now

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 10:48 AM EDT
CINCINNATI


A former Ohio police captain released after nearly 15 years in prison for his ex-wife's killing can remain free as the state's highest court considers taking his case.

The Ohio Supreme Court's ruling Wednesday will allow former Akron Capt. Doug Prade to stay out of jail until at least the summer.

That's when the court should decide whether to consider Prade's appeal of a lower court's ruling.

The March ruling by Ohio's 9th District Court of Appeals found a judge was wrong to free Prade based on bite-mark DNA testing.

If the Supreme Court takes the case, Prade would remain free as the justices weigh whether to overturn the lower ruling.

If the court turns down the case, Prade would have to go back to jail.
