Columbus judge rules dead woman's testimony can be used at trial

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- A Franklin County judge has decided that Judy Malinowski's testimony will be allowed at the July trial of her accused killer.

Malinowski recorded a deposition in 2017 as she lay dying in a hospital bed from extensive burns, allegedly from ex-boyfriend Michael Slager.

Slager's attorneys say he's being denied the right to face his accuser in court.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Slager.
