Defense Wants Change of Venue for Kelley Trial

A REQUEST IS MADE BY JESSICA KELLEY’S DEFENSE TEAM TO MOVE HER TRIAL OUT OF ALBUQUERQUE. SHE’S ONE OF THE SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN THE MURDER IN JANUARY 2017 OF 10 YEAR OLD VICTORIA MARTENS. KELLEY’S LAWYERS WANT HER TRIAL MOVE TO EITHER RIO ARRIBA, TAOS OR MCKINLEY COUNTY, HOPING TO AVOID ALL THE MEDIA ATTENTION SHE’LL LIKELY GET IN ALBUQUERQUE.

THE DEFENSE TEAM ALSO WANTS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PHOTOS FROM THE CRIME SCENE AND FROM THE VICTIM’S AUTOPSY. AND THEY SAY THE STATE BUGGED KELLEY’S CELL WITHOUT A WARRANT.

THE JUDGE HAS NOT YET RULED ON THE CHANGE OF VENUE REQUEST. KELLEY’S TRIAL IS SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY.
