CINCINNATI, Ohio - A Ryan Widmer attorney is taking a second shot at getting a fourth trial.

A jury convicted Widmer in his third trial last year for the 2008 drowning death of his wife, Sarah Widmer, in the bathtub of their Hamilton Township home.

Widmer's attorney, Michele Berry told 9 News that she filed a second notice of appeal this week. The appeal asks the 12th District Court of Appeals to overrule Warren County Common Pleas Judge Neal Bronson's ruling on her petition for post conviction relief, genetic testing and a fourth trial.

There is already an appeal pending before the 12th District that asks the judges to throw out his convictions and to grant Widmer a new trial.

Berry says she plans to request the court to consolidate the two appeals, so all claims can be addressed at the same time.
