Ohio man granted new trial in 1974 slaying of his wife



CLEVELAND (AP) — A judge has granted a new trial to an Ohio man convicted of his wife’s murder 4 1/2 decades ago, saying his lawyers should have been told about a report naming another possible suspect. Cleveland.com reports that a Cuyahoga County judge last week cited the failure of prosecutors to give lawyers for now-82-year-old Isiah Andrews a Cleveland police report identifying a different possible suspect in the September 1974 slaying of Regina Andrews. Authorities said the defendant reported his wife of 24 days missing from their residence at the Colonial House Motel. Her body was found the next day in a park.
