Former Akron Police Capt. Douglas Prade, who won a Summit County court decision that found he was innocent in the 1997 slaying of his ex-wife, Dr. Margo Prade, awaits the beginning of oral arguments Thursday in Akron's 9th District Court of Appeals. Prosecutors are trying to show that the January court order by Judge Judy Hunter, freeing Prade from prison and overturning his 1998 murder conviction, was erroneous. (Ed Meyer/Akron Beacon Journal)
