ROSSFORD, OH (WTOL) - A Rossford man accused of beating his wife to death last May went before a judge again Thursday afternoon. The pretrial essentially set in stone Dan Lambert's three-day jury trial, which is set to begin April 20th.
As you may remember, Lambert's wife Cat was found on the floor of their Rossford home garage last May.
A frantic Lambert called 911 to report that he had found her there. After police began investigating, they determined that it did not appear to be an accident, and went to the hospital to arrest Lambert.
He was indicted on murder, aggravated murder, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence charges shortly after the incident. If he if found guilty, he could face a maximum penalty of life in prison, without the possibility of parole.
