The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an an appeal by a former Akron police captain seeking a new trial for the 1997 slaying of his ex-wife. 

Douglas Prade is serving life in prison for killing Margo Prade. The Ohio Supreme Court last year upheld a lower court ruling overturning a judge's decision that led to Prade's release from prison. Prade was sent back to prison after prosecutors successfully appealed.
