At a pretrial hearing today, DA Dewey Hudson and defense lawyer Dick McNeil agreed that a change of venue for the murder trial was necessary due to excessive publicity.
While Judge Charles Henry agreed to the change of venue, no location has been chosen. The trial is scheduled to begin June 18, 2010.
McNeill says the trial should take two to three weeks while Hudson is looking at a month.
Laurean is charged with murdering fellow Marine Maria Lauterbach and her unborn baby.
