An ex-cop from Ohio requests to be released on bail today, while police determine if they will be retrying him for staging a burglary that resulted in his wife's death. In 2003, former Springboro Police Lt. Thomas Barton was convicted for manslaughter after authorities believed he set up a fake burglary to scare his wife into moving towns, in the hopes he could further his career, however the staged burglary resulted in his wife's death. The conviction was overturned in 2005 after the the federal court deemed that authorities withheld evidence that would've helped Burton, as well as had a case based on an unreliable witness. Warren County officials are opposing Burton's bail and now have until September to either retry or free him. If you are interested in reading more about this case, here is a news article on the case.
