Widmer defense attorneys want jurors to tour home

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - Ryan Widmer's defense attorneys want jurors to tour the home where Ryan's wife, Sarah, died in 2008.

Widmer is facing his third trial for Sarah's death. A conviction in his first trial was overturned due to juror misconduct, and the second trial ended in a hung jury.

Testimony is scheduled to begin Monday, but could be delayed a few days. The jury was seated on Wednesday.

A tour of the home was done in the second trial. Prosecutors are saying they don't think its appropriate this time though, because the home has drastically changed since the murder. That includes the fact that the new homeowners have replaced the bathtub where Sarah's body was found, as well as the carpet in the home.

There are more than 275 photographs of the scene that the jury can review.
