LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - The judge in the Ryan Widmer case has extended the deadline for the defense to file a motion to dismiss the case Tuesday.

Judge Bronson has allowed the defense to wait until June 30th to file a dismissal in the Ryan Widmer murder trial.

If a motion to dismiss the case is presented to the judge, and the judge dismisses the case, the prosecution can no longer file a case against Ryan Widmer. If the judge refuses to dismiss the case, the prosecution then has until July 20th to file again, if they want to have a third trial against Ryan Widmer.
