Ryan Widmer’s mother was found dead in her Mason home around noon Monday, according to the Warren County Coroner’s Office.
Jill Widmer’s autopsy will be performed Tuesday. She suffered medical issues and was 55; foul play is not suspected, said Doyle Burke, chief investigator.
One of her sons found her body and called 911, he said.
Ryan Widmer, 32, is serving 15 years to life for drowning his wife, Sarah, in the bathtub at their Hamilton Township home in 2008.
His family helped to pay for his legal expenses, which grew to be hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In May, the Ohio Supreme Court declined to give Widmer another trial.
