Sarah Widmer's mother, Ruth Ann Steward, has been called to testify against her daughter's husband, Ryan Widmer, who is accused of killing Sarah.
With Steward's testimony, Warren County prosecutors appear to be on the verge of wrapping up their case against Widmer, accused in the 2008 bathtub drowning of his wife. The two were only married four months.
According to court documents, prosecutors have whittled down their list of available witnesses to just a few.
Some of Sarah Widmer’s relatives, including her mother and brother, did not want to attend the retrial. They sat through the original trial last year, when the guilty verdict was thrown out because of juror misconduct.
