OZARK — A Johntown community man on death row for a nearly decade-old murder in Dale County could get a new trial after a judge ruled in his favor this week.

Emanuel Gissendanner, 34, was granted a new trial on Tuesday after Dale County Circuit Judge Ken Quattlebaum ruled attorneys Joe Gallo and Bill Kominos could have made “unprofessional errors” while defending Gissendanner for the murder of 77-year-old Margaret Snellgrove.

Prosecutors with the state attorney general’s office have a little more than a month to appeal Quattlebaum’s ruling to the state Court of Criminal Appeals.

Gissendanner was convicted of capital murder, kidnapping and robbery after Snellgrove was abducted from her Choctaw Street residence in 2001 and found dead five days later in the Johntown area.

Authorities said Gissendanner was spotted at a bank with one of Snellgrove’s checks after her disappearance and had clothes at an abandoned trailer in Johntown in which some of Snellgrove’s property was found.
