LEBANON - Ryan Widmer's third murder trial will be held in Warren County, a judge ruled Friday.
Warren County Common Pleas Judge Neal Bronson shot down prosecutors' request for a change of venue in the controversial bathtub-drowning case.
"The court cannot say, at this time, that the attempt to seat a jury in Warren County would be a 'vain act.' " Broson wrote.
"Judicial economy, convenience and potential expense to the taxpayer require that the court make a good-faith effort to (empanel) a jury in Warren County."
