(Akron) - Former Akron Police Captain Doug Prade has been sent to the Summit County Jail.  

Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Christine Croce ruled he should be locked up pending a state appeals court ruling on whether he deserves a new trial for the 1997 murder of his ex-wife, Dr. Margo Prade.

Prade spent fifteen years in prison for his ex-wife's murder but was released a year and a half ago after a different judge, Judy Hunter, ruled DNA evidence from another unidentified person was found on Dr. Prade's lab court raising reasonable doubt in the case.  Judge Hunter ruled Doug Prade was entitled to a new trial.
