MOUNT VERNON, Mo. (AP) - A prosecutor says a state appeals court ruling will allow him to resume his case against a southwest Missouri man suspected of killing his wife.

The Missouri Court of Appeals for the Southern District reversed a Lawrence County judge’s decision to suppress statements David Holman made to investigators after his wife, Radonna Holman, was killed in 2013 at their home near La Russell. Holman is charged with first-degree murder.

The Joplin Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1RR1xAk ) the issue is statements Holman made after refusing to sign a consent form to allow deputies to search his house without first talking to an attorney. He told investigators he shot his wife after she shot him.

Holman’s attorney argued any statements he made after that to investigators should have been suppressed.
