LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - Ryan Widmer is back in the Warren County Jail awaiting his new trial.

Widmer, 28, was booked in the jail at 11:30 a.m. Friday morning. He was being held at the Lebanon Correctional Institute after a jury convicted him in April of murdering his wife, Sarah.

The move to the Warren County Jail comes after Widmer was granted a new trial earlier this week by Judge Neal Bronson because some jurors conducted their own experiments during deliberations, which was against judge's orders.

Widmer is being held on a $1 million bond. If he posts bond, he will have to wear and electronic monitoring device.
