A change of venue and motion to suppress evidence in the Marcia Kelly case will be reviewed by District Judge Ed Klein. Kelly is held in connection with the October alleged murder for hire case of her 32 year old husband, James Kelly.
Kelly's defense attorney Tim James is trying to show that a potential jury pool could be influenced by media coverage. Klein will make his decision on that motion July 31 after jury selection. Interviews of potential jurors will provide additional evidence for his decision. Copies of news stories done by KTRE and also the Daily Sentinel newspaper concerning the Kelly case and five other defendants involved in the same case were entered into evidence. A total of six witnesses were called to testify.
