LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A hearing will be held later this month to discuss the next steps for Ryan Widmer's third trial.

Widmer is going on trial for a third time for the death of his wife, Sarah. He was convicted in his first trial, but was granted a new trial for juror misconduct. His second trial ended in a hung jury.

Judge Neal Bronson overturned a motion for acquittal earlier this month that was filed by Widmer's attorneys, which cleared the way for a third trial.

A hearing to discuss the trial will be held August 31 in Judge Bronson's chambers. It's possible that a new trial date will be set at this hearing.
