(Akron) - Former Akron Police Captain Doug Prade has been sent to the Summit County Jail. Â
Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Christine Croce ruled he should be locked up pending a state appeals court ruling on whether he deserves a new trial for the 1997 murder of his ex-wife, Dr. Margo Prade.
Prade spent fifteen years in prison for his ex-wife's murder but was released a year and a half ago after a different judge, Judy Hunter, ruled DNA evidence from another unidentified person was found on Dr. Prade's lab court raising reasonable doubt in the case. Â Judge Hunter ruled Doug Prade was entitled to a new trial.
