"A Summit County judge will hear oral arguments at a hearing June 12 on whether former Akron Police Capt. Douglas Prade should receive a new trial in the 1997 death of his ex-wife.........Prade, 69, was found guilty by a jury in 1998 of killing his wife, Margot Prade. Prosecutors oppose holding a new trial. The case has been appealed several times since, though a judge exonerated Douglas Prade in 2013 because of DNA evidence from another person was found on Margot Prade. ........Margo Prade, a 41-year-old physician, was found dead in her minivan outside her medical office on Nov. 26, 1997. She was shot six times at close range, and the killer bit through her lab coat into her arm. Douglas Prade, whom Margo divorced seven months before her death, was subsequently tried and convicted of aggravated murder, in part because of expert testimony by a forensic dentist matching him with the bite mark. David Alden, Prade's attorney, said Thursday that the DNA evidence makes a compelling case for a new trial."
