UPDATE 1:22 PM reporting Jensen's bail set at 1.2 million.

January 6, 2016
Mark Jensen, convicted in 2008 of killing his wife by antifreeze poisoning will get a new trial.

Do any of you remember this case? This was a trial that T&T covered, by watching it online.

Mark Jensen's wife Julie died on December 3, 1998 from antifreeze poisoning. Jensen's defense argument was Julie committed suicide.

Jensen was convicted of her murder in February 2008. The prosecutor was Robert Jambois. Jensen was defended by Craig Albee.

One of the unique pieces of evidence in this case was a letter the victim had given to neighbor Ted Wojt (along with a roll of film), instructing him to give it to police in case of her unusual demise.

That letter was the main basis for Jensen's appeal. The Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed with the appellate court's decision to overturn Jensen's conviction on the grounds that statements Julie Jensen made before her death should never have been admitted into evidence.

Jensen was scheduled to have a bond hearing today. I will update as soon as I hear any news of his custody status.
