    Ryan Widmer is the Warren County man accused of drowning his wife, Sarah, in their bathtub.

 

The Ohio Supreme Court says it won't hear the latest appeal by a southwest Ohio man seeking his fourth trial in the 2008 bathtub drowning of his wife.

The attorney for Ryan Widmer had asked the justices to consider whether DNA testing should have been allowed on Widmer's wife Sarah to see if she suffered from a genetic disorder. The defense contended she showed signs of a disorder that could have caused her to drown.

The court on Wednesday declined jurisdiction for the appeal by Widmer, who is serving 15 years to life in prison for his 2011 murder conviction.

Widmer's first trial in 2009 ended in a mistrial over juror misconduct, while the second jury was hung. A third jury found Widmer guilty.
