Seth Techel Seeking New Murder Trial


DES MOINES, Iowa — A fourth trial could be coming for convicted murderer Seth Techel.

Techel was found guilty July 24th of first degree murder and nonconsensual termination of a pregnancy for the death of his pregnant wife Lisa. Online court records show a request for a new trial was filed August 19th.

The guilty verdict came in Techel’s third murder trial. Two previous juries had been unable to reach a decision, causing mistrials.

Officials say Techel shot his wife Lisa to death at their Agency home in May of 2012.
