LIMA — A judge has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday to hear from prosecutors on why they have not turned over evidence to the legal team representing a doctor accused of killing his wife.
Prosecutors had agreed a month ago to turn over to Mark Wangler’s defense team documents and data from tests performed at the University of Wisconsin on soot found in the home where Wangler’s wife died.
Judge Richard Warren of Allen County Common Pleas Court set the hearing to hear why the documents and data have not been turned over. Wangler, an anesthesiologist, is charged with aggravated murder in the Sept. 4, 2006, death of his first wife, Kathy Wangler. She died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Wangler’s attorneys have asked the court to sanction prosecutors for the delay in turning over the documents and data.
