Second Trial To Be Held For Former Police Officer

(Oregon City, OR) -- A second trial will be held for a former Gladstone Police officer in his wife's killing after the Oregon Supreme Court affirmed his overturned murder conviction. The court upheld last year's Court of Appeals ruling that found prosecutors improperly relied on a jail house informant to convict Lynn Benton. Prosecutors say Benton paid two people to kill his wife Debbie Higbee in 2011. The Clackamas County District Attorney's Office confirmed they will meet with the court and Benton's lawyer to schedule another trial date.
