The man charged in a domestic violence case filed a motion to suppress the evidence against him on Tuesday, arguing that his wife’s DNA was on the weapon used to kill her and that the case against him was trumped up.
James R. Mixon, 36, filed the motion in the Dane County Circuit Court, claiming his wife was murdered on the night of April 17, 2017.
His attorney said the case is overblown and has been thoroughly investigated, and that it was not his intention to injure his wife.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported that Mixon had filed a lawsuit against his wife for assault and battery, but the case was dropped because he did not provide enough evidence.
Muxinton’s attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Mixon has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
