A jury to be chosen from another county will hear the evidence against a man from Springfield who's been charged with murder.
A judge in Taney County granted the request from Tony Friend who was indicted for killing Rusty and Becky Porter from Willard nearly two years ago. The couple was found buried in the Mark Twain National Forest.
Four others have also been charged. The list includes Friend's wife and son as well as Rusty Porter's uncle.
The trial for Dusty Hicks will also be heard by an imported jury.
