WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19)-- Ryan Widmer's mother is talking about how she feels regarding the possibility of a new trial next week.
"Right now, I'm trying to look at anything as a little ray of hope, and that was a ray of hope," she told FOX19's Sara Gouedy.
Widmer says she's not looking for sympathy. She says she is looking forward to a court hearing that could give her son Ryan a new trial or set him free.
"I don't think there's any way you can prepare for it, other than we've got tons and tons of people to continue to pray, and that's kind of what we're doing," she says.
Prosecutors and a jury both said Ryan Widmer drowned his wife Sara in the bathtub of their home last August. A jury found Ryan guilty of murder earlier this month. He's currently serving a prison sentence of 15 years to life.
Ryan's mother says her son is innocent. Jill Widmer points out the emails and notes of support that have convinced her she's not alone in feeling like this. And around Warren county, there are a number of vocal people who say the guilty verdict didn't fit this case.
"I truly believe he would never ever put his family through this, and all of his friends, if he had done something like this." Debbie Cupp told FOX19's Sara Gouedy.
Cupp is a self described close friend of the family, who sat next to them during Cincinnati Bengal's games.
"He would have stepped up to the plate and never made any of them suffer. He's such a family person," Cupp says.
Next Thursday night, supporters of Ryan Widmer are planning a vigil in Warren county. The vigil's been organized through the Free Ryan Widmer website, with plans to hold it the night before the hearing.
Seven jurors have now been ordered to appear in court at the hearing.They may answer allegations made by one juror that some performed home experiments while deliberating Ryan's verdict. Juror John Campbell made that assessment as part of a motion made by Ryan's defense team for a new trial, or acquittal.
"This is my son's life, and and he will spend the rest of his life in jail, and if there are any other people that feel that something was done incorrectly, I just pray to god that they will have enough courage to step forward." says Jill Widmer.
Her son may be a convicted murderer, but this mother will not stop fighting it.
