EL PASO - The judge in the David Marmolejo murder case appears to be leaning toward a change in venue.
As has been widely reported, the judge declared a mistrial in the case after jurors could not reach unanimous agreement on a verdict.
Today the judge said he's considering three locations for Marmolejo's next trial.
He said Austin is his first choice, San Antonio his second and Houston his third choice.
A final decision on a possible change of venue will be made December 14.
Marmolejo is accused of strangling his mother Gloria and of dumping her body in the Santa Teresa desert.
