Kenosha man being retried in ex-wife's killing

KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) – A Kenosha man is back on trial ten years after being convicted of first-degree intentional homicide, sexual assault, and false imprisonment of his ex-wife.

Oscar Thomas was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. He argued he accidentally strangled Joyce Oliver-Thomas during consensual sex in December 2006.

A federal appeals court overturned Thomas’ conviction, ruling his attorney failed to consult with an expert who could have refuted testimony from the medical examiner.
