In this March 20 photo, Douglas Prade (left) walks out of the Summit County Jail in Akron. Prade, a former Akron police captain released after nearly 15 years in prison for his ex-wife's killing, can remain free as the state's highest court considers whether to take on his case, the court ruled Wednesday. The Ohio Supreme Court ruling will allow Prade to stay out of jail until at least the summer, when the court is expected to decide whether to consider Prade's appeal of a lower court's March ruling.
