LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A Lawrence man awaiting a retrial in the 2004 death of his wife has bonded out of jail.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports 55-year-old Martin Miller met his $250,000 bond and was released from the Douglas County Jail Wednesday.

Miller was convicted in 2005 for the death of 46-year-old Mary Miller. Prosecutors allege he strangled his wife at their home in July 2004 because he was having an affair and wanted to collect $300,000 in life insurance.

That conviction was overturned in February when the Kansas Supreme Court ruled the jury instructions in his trial were incorrect.

Miller is scheduled to return to court on May 1, when a new trial will be scheduled.
