  • Fire at metal shop in Mentor
  • Giant Eagle host huge job fair at I-X Center
  • Hearing today to decide the fate of Douglas Prade
    A former Akron police captain is scheduled to appear before a judge to determine if he can remain free or must return to prison in the slaying of his ex-wife.

    Douglas Prade spent nearly 15 years in prison unitl a judge in 2013 decided a bite mark on his ex-wife's lab coat was not his based on DNA evidence.

    An appellate court overturned that ruling in March and the Ohio Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the reversal.

    Prade was convicted in the 1997 shooting death of his ex-wife outside her medical office.

    Attorneys for the 68-year-old Prade say he's innocent.

    A hearing this afternoon will decide whether Prade will return to prison and if he should get a new trial.
