LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - The Warren County man convicted earlier this month of killing his wife in a bathtub has a new home.

Ryan Widmer was transferred to the Warren Correctional Institution in Lebanon.

He was previously being held at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, Ohio.

A hearing is set for next week to determine if Widmer should get a new trial or be acquitted after a juror revealed that fellow jurors conducted their own experiments during deliberation.

The Warren Correctional Institution is not far from where Widmer lived with his wife, Sarah, in Hamilton Township when she died.
