Status Hearing for David Marmolejo this Morning
A status hearing is scheduled this morning at 9:00 for an El Paso man accused of killing his mother. David Marmolejo is set to go on trial next month on the murder charge.
A judge has ruled that Marmolejo will stand trial in El Paso despite objections from the accused killer's attorney who claims pre-trial publicity will taint any jury.
Marmolejo is accused of strangling his mother, Gloria Marmolejo, to death last year and then dumping her body in the Santa Teresa desert.
