A judge has denied a change of venue request for one of the men accused of murdering a Linton teenager.

Randal Crosley and Jordan Buskirk are charged with murder in the death of 19-year-old Katelyn Wolfe. Crosley had requested a change of venue, but a Greene County judge denied the request.

The judge did, however, agree to allow jurors to be brought in from another county.

Buskirk has also filed for a change of venue, but no hearing has been scheduled at this time.

Despite admitting to police they committed the crime, a judge has entered a plea of not guilty on the defendants' behalf. A pre-trial conference for both men is scheduled for August 5.
