Upshur Murder Case Change Of Venue Request

Defense attorneys want to move the trial of a second defendant in a case of murder in Upshur County. The attorneys said today press coverage would make it impossible for defendant, Gregory Scott Narramore to get a fair trial in Gilmer. Narramore is the second defendant accused in the murder and beheading of Joe Carroll Nickelbur in April 2004.

Narramore's attorneys want the trial moved to another county.

No decision on the request was made today. Narramore's brother, Jeremy, was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison in the case earlier this month.
