Ohio man accused of plotting with teenage foster daughter to kill his wife

PAINESVILLE, Ohio -- A northeast Ohio man accused of plotting with a romantically involved teenage foster daughter to kill his wife is claiming that police improperly obtained evidence against him.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald reports that Kevin Knoefel's attorneys are claiming that Willoughby Hills police made numerous errors in the investigation. They filed a motion to get the evidence thrown out before trial.

Among the claims are that phone calls were illegally recorded and that Knoefel was interrogated without an attorney.

Knoefel has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit aggravated murder and complicity to aggravated murder. His trial is scheduled for Jan. 21. His 18-year-old foster daughter is charged with murder.

Knoefel's 41-year-old wife, Lisa, was found stabbed to death in their home in November 2012.
