AKRON -- Arguments began Monday in the case of a former Ohio police captain who says new DNA evidence proves he didn't kill his ex-wife in 1997.
Doug Prade has spent the last 14 years in prison after a jury convicted him of his ex-wife's killing.
The conviction came despite a lack of witnesses, fingerprints or a murder weapon, but was based largely on a bite mark found on Margo Prade's body.
One forensic dentist testified the mark matched Prade's teeth.
Prade's attorney, Carrie Wood of the Cincinnati-based Ohio Innocence Project, argues that new DNA test results around the bite mark prove her client has been innocent all along.
She is seeking Prade's exoneration and release, or a new trial.
Arguments will continue Friday after a three-day break.
