Posted: Updated:

There are new developments in the murder trial of a Sidney teacher.

On Tuesday, Richland County prosecutors asked the judge in Sherry Arnold's murder trial to accept a confession made by Michael Keith Spell.

According to court papers, the Richland County Deputy Attorney said there was no evidence of police misconduct during their interview with Spell, and that police officers made sure Spell understood he did not have to talk without a lawyer present.

Spell, along with Lester Van Waters, Jr., allegedly kidnapped and killed Arnold during her morning jog in January 2012. Both Spell and Van Waters have pleaded not guilty to charges against them.

Prosecutors have said they intend to seek the Death Penalty.
