Cleveland woman seeks new trial over poisoning lover

She was convicted in the 2006 death of 31-year-old Matthew Podolak, the father of their two children. Prosecutors alleged she poisoned his tea over several weeks.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Lawyers are requesting a new trial for a Cleveland woman convicted of killing her fiancé by poisoning his raspberry iced tea with antifreeze.



Holly McFeeture was scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday, but her attorneys are seeking a delay and arguing for a new trial.


The Plain Dealer reports the defense alleges the prosecutor's office withheld information about the credibility of a key witness who was an informant in another case.



The prosecutor's office says that witness wasn't promised anything for his testimony and was cross-examined at trial.



The 35-year-old McFeeture could face life in prison.
