The steps to a new trial for Douglas Plude are underway. He was convicted of killing his wife in 2002. The Wisconsin Supreme Court threw out the conviction when an expert witnesses' credentials were found to be exaggerated. Representatives for the county are refusing to comment on the case to avoid compromising this new trial which begins in early October. According to online court records, attorneys are looking into the backgrounds of witnesses expected to testify in this new trial to determine whether that could impact any future outcome.
