Change Of Venue In Robertson Case Denied

Request denied. The trial of Jeffery Doyle Robertson will be in Van Zandt County. He's accused of shooting Canton football coach Gary Joe Kinne last April. The state's change of venue request was not granted.

Last week, the prosecution argued for a change of venue due to extensive media coverage. The defense wanted Robertson's charges downgraded. That too, will not happen. That means Robertson will face the original charges of a first degree felony of aggravated assault against a public servant.

Jury selection is set to begin February first.
