AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Douglas Prade will return to Judge Christine Croce's courtroom Wednesday.

At issue: whether Akron's former police captain will be granted a new trial for killing his wife.

His case was sent back to a lower court after the Ohio Supreme Court rejected Prade's appeal in April. 

Prade, 69, was convicted in 1998 of murdering his wife Dr. Margo Prade the day before Thanksgiving in 1997. He was sentenced to 26 years to life and has already served 15 years of his sentence.

Prade remains jailed while this process is played out. The hearing is expected to continue through Friday.
