EL PASO - The stage is set for what is sure to be one of the most watched murder trials of the year in El Paso.
A judge today made key decisions in the case against David Marmolejo.
You recall, Marmolejo is accused of strangling his mother Gloria to death one year ago and of dumping her body in the Santa Teresa desert.
There has been so much publicity surrounding the case that his attorney felt he could not get a fair trial in El Paso.
The judge rejected a change of venue request so the trial will be held in El Paso.
A trial date has been set for October 1st.
