Change of Venue Rejected

The request from alleged murderer LaSondra Johnson and her attorneys to move the trial out of Black Hawk County has been denied, according to KWWL. Defense attorneys had argued that the 36 year old Johnson would not be able to receive a fair trial due to the amount of media coverage, however the judge ruled that they did not do enough to prove that was indeed the case. Johnson has been charged with the first degree murder of Jada Young-Mills in November.
