Judge Dennis Foust has denied a change of venue request for George Luna. Foust has set September 19 as the date for the trial date to be determined in Marshall County Circuit Court.

Luna was convicted in 2008 for the killing of Debra Hendrickson at her Marshall County home in 2007.

A state supreme court ruling last November granted Luna a retrial. Last week Luna's attorneys had asked for a change of venue to Christian County, citing media coverage as the reason.

In Foust's decision on the matter he noted that if a fair and impartial jury cannot be seated in Marshall County, the court will change the venue to Calloway County.
