No new Trial for Seth Techel
By Courtney Durst, August 01, 2016
(Ottumwa) Seth Techel of Ottumwa will not be getting a new trial.
Last Wednesday, the Iowa Court of Appeals turned down a request from Techel for another trial.
Techel was found guilty of killing his wife at their rurarl Agency home several years ago.
In his latest appeal, Techel claimed the district curt erred in denying his motion to continue the third trial and then rejected a motion for a mistrial.
The Appeals court rejected each of Techel’s claims. He remains at the Anamosa State Penitentiary.
