New Trial Ordered For South Brunswick Man Accused Of Killing Wife

STATE – The New Jersey Supreme Court upheld a ruling to overturn the conviction of a South Brunswick man who allegedly ran over his wife and killed her following a drunken dispute, according to an report.

The court ordered a new trial for Samander Dabas, 46, who was convicted in 2007 of killing his wife Rena in 2004. An appellate court panel overturned that conviction in 2011, ruling that a judge improperly failed to instruct jurors to consider the implications of a prosecutor’s office detective’s decision to destroy notes from a pre-interview with the suspect.
