Prosecutors have lost their first appeal in an attempt to try Okemos Doctor Charles Mercer for his wife's 1968 murder.

On Thursday, Ingham County Judge William Collette upheld his decision to dismiss the case

Judge Collette ruled the amount of time that has passed, coupled with lost or destroyed evidence, has made it unfairly difficult for Mercer to defend himself.
