LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A judge will allow jurors in the Ryan Widmer re-trial to see the bathtub where he allegedly drowned his wife.

Widmer is accused of killing his wife, Sarah, in their Hamilton Township home in August of 2008. He was convicted last year, but the judge ordered a retrial after juror misconduct.

A pretrial hearing was held Wednesday. The new trial is scheduled to begin next week.

The judge also ruled that Widmer's 911 call will also be allowed in court. The judge is still deciding on whether two expert witnesses for the defense will be allowed to testify.
