PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A judge is expected to decide in the coming weeks whether prosecutors in the case of a Prescott stockbroker accused of killing his ex-wife had illegally viewed documents that weren't intended for them.
Attorneys for Steven DeMocker are asking a judge to either disqualify Yavapai County prosecutors from handling the case or to dismiss the charges completely.
The Daily Courier reports that DeMocker's trial on charges that he killed his ex-wife in 2008 has been on hold while a hearing over the documents takes place.
His first trial ended abruptly in late 2010 when his legal team quit, citing a conflict of interest.
Prosecutors allege DeMocker bludgeoned Kennedy with a golf club to avoid paying alimony bills.
DeMocker has maintained that he is innocent.
