DAVENPORT, Iowa — A Wapello County man will be sentenced to life in prison Wednesday, more than two years after his wife’s shooting death.

Seth Techel was convicted of the first degree murder of his wife, Lisa, in July. He was also convicted of nonconsensual termination of a fetus. Lisa was pregnant at the time of her murder.

It was Techel’s third trial for the crime. The first two ended with hung juries.

Techel will be handed a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

He is already seeking a new trial in his case.
