In October 1999, the dead body of Genell Plude was found in her home. An autopsy said she had drowned in a toilet bowl and overdosed on migraine medicine. Plude had recently told her husband that she was a lesbian and was going to leave him.
Doug Plude was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison, but he maintains that she committed suicide.
Because of problematic evidence given in the first trial, the Wisconsin Supreme Court granted Doug Plude another chance to argue his case. But the prosecution says it has new evidence that only strengthens its case.
