Man charged with killing wife gets jury trial
A man accused of shooting his wife outside a New Germany grocery store will be tried before a judge and jury.
Wayne Eisnor made a brief court appearance in Bridgewater court Thursday.
Eisnor is accused of killing Tina Mae Eisnor in June 2010. She was shot in the head while sitting in a van.
Wayne Eisnor was found on the ground with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He had a .22-calibre rifle under his body.
Initially, he was found not fit to stand trial. Eisnor suffered brain damage as the result of the gunshot wound. But as his cognitive abilities improved, that decision was reversed. Thursday, he elected to be tried by judge and jury.
Tina Eisnor's brother, Jody Illingworth, said in February he was frustrated by constant delays in the court system.
Wayne Eisnor's trial is now scheduled to begin in May 2013.
