A Hocking County judge has denied a new trial for a man who last month was convicted of murdering his wife.
According to the Hocking County Sheriff's Office, Common Pleas Court Judge John Wallace will not grant William Inman II a new trial.
Wallace heard arguments Tuesday from Inman's attorneys. 
His attorneys had filed a motion claiming a witness' criminal background was not disclosed before he testified against their client.
They say the new information tarnishes the credibility of the witness.
The prosecutor didn't immediately return a call for comment.
Jurors had recommended a life sentence without possibility of parole for Inman.
