Fourth trial for Techel?

Could a fourth trial be in the works for Seth Techel?  Techel’s lawyers hope so.

Court records indicate Techel’s attorney Gerald Feuerhelm has filed a motion asking for a fourth trail.  Techel was found guilty of First degree Murder by a Scott County district court jury last month.

In two previous trials on in Wapello County and one in Henry county, jurors could not reach a guilty verdict.

Techel is scheduled to be sentenced on September 8th. He remains in custody.
