Change of venue granted in western KY murder trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The trial for a Kentucky man accused of beating his 9-year-old adoptive sister to death has been moved.

Citing pre-trial publicity in Todd and Christian counties, the trial for Garrett Dye has been moved to Logan County.

In June 2013, the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned the conviction and 50-year-prison sentence for Dye. The justices decided that his confession was coerced.

The judges ruled that police improperly told Dye, that if he didn't confess a jury would convict him and sentence him to death.
