The jury in a Henry County murder trial is expected to begin deliberations today. The prosecution rested yesterday afternoon, and Seth Techel’s defense will wrap up their closing arguments this morning. Techel’s retrial began in Mt Pleasant on October 28th. His first trial this past spring in Wapello County ended in a mistrial. He’s charged with two felonies, first degree murder and non-consensual termination of a pregnancy in connection with the shooting death of his wife at their home in Agency in May 2012.
