Murder suspect granted change of venue

The re-trial of a Scott County man, charged with killing his pregnant girlfriend, has been moved to Bourbon County.

On Friday, a Scott County judge granted Roger McBeath's defense attorney's a change of venue motion.

His murder conviction was overturned in 2007 by the state supreme court.

McBeath is charged with killing Ashley Lyons, who was pregnant. Her body was found in her car in a Georgetown park in 2004.

McBeath's retrial is set to begin on July 13th.
