Pa. man seeks 3rd trial in 2001 wife's murder

September 25, 2013

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia man convicted twice in the stabbing death of his wife a dozen years ago is seeking a third trial.

Forty-eight-year-old Adam Rosen is serving a life term in the June 2001 murder of 31-year-old Hollie Rosen in their Montgomery Township home.

The (Doylestown) Intelligencer (http://bit.ly/18W50wm ) says Rosen has filed a petition in Montgomery County Court alleging that his attorney in his second trial was ineffective.

Prosecutors contended that Rosen felt trapped in his marriage and wanted out. Rosen has said the slaying occurred during a heated argument and wasn't premeditated, and his attorney should have disputed testimony that the victim's injuries didn't indicate a crime of passion.

A state Superior Court granted him a new trial after his first conviction, saying his attorney had been ineffective.
