LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - According to motions filed by prosecutors in Warren County, Ryan Widmer's guilty verdict should not be overturned, and he should not get a new trial.
Widmer is currently serving 15 years to life in prison after he was convicted of murder last month, for the drowning death of his wife Sarah.
In the motion prosecutors say "the defendant's allegation of juror misconduct is based exclusively on inadmissible hearsay statements which this Court may not consider."
Prosecutors are referring specifically to Juror D.E., who the defense claims told someone with initials S.L., "We know he's guilty, he is going to burn in hell."
Judge Bronson has set a hearing for March 23 for both sides to discuss the motions.
