Techel's 3rd Murder Trial Set for July

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) -- The third murder trial of a former Iowa jail guard accused of killing his pregnant wife has been scheduled to begin on July 14.
   Twenty-three-year-old Seth Techel is charged with first-degree murder in the May 2012 death of his wife, Lisa Techel. She was found shot in the couple's Agency trailer in southeast Iowa. Seth Techel is also charged in the death of the unborn child.
   The trial has been moved to Davenport in Scott County.
   Techel's second trial ended Nov. 15 in a mistrial after a jury in Mount Pleasant could not reach a unanimous verdict. His first trial, held in Ottumwa in March, also ended in a mistrial.
   Also on Wednesday, a judge rejected a request to lower Techel's bond to $75,000. Bond will remain at $750,000.
