(Akron)- Former Akron Police Captain Douglas Prade could learn next week whether he'll get a new trial for the murder of his former wife.

A Summit County judge set an August 25th hearing date to hear arguments for and against a trial after an appeals court overturned his exoneration last year.

Prade was free for 18 months after a judge ruled new DNA evidence cleared him in the 1998 slaying.
