Man Accused of Poisoning His Fourth Wife To Be Re-tried for Poisoning His Third Wife

Images-5A 59-year-old former Vienna funeral director, Robert Girts, has been charged with murdering his third wife and is now in jail accused of poisoning his fourth wife.

His fourth wife claims that she started feeling ill after Girts began bringing coffee to her workplace. Girts's murder convictions were twice overturned in the death of his third wife, who died after potassium cyanide was sprinkled on her pasta salad.  Prosecutors are preparing to retry Girts for a third time and based on the claim of his fourth wife, his bond was recently revoked at an emergency hearing in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.
