Change Of Venue Request Denied In McDuffie Capital Murder Cases

Posted: Updated:
McDuffie County, GA -

A McDuffie County judge has denied a request by attorneys for Ricky and Tina Wells to move their capital murder cases out of the CSRA.

A change of venue hearing was held Wednesday morning in McDuffie County on claims by the attorneys that media coverage would prevent selection of an impartial jury.

There is no word on if an appeal to the judge's decision is in the works.

Tina and Ricky Wells, who are not related, are accused of shooting Ricky Wells' wife, Jennifer Kitchens Wells, then dragging her body seven miles behind a vehicle in 2011.
