(KMOV)-- A judge ruled on Tuesday that the murder trial surrounding Chris Coleman will take place in Monroe County. The jury that will decide his future will be brought in from out of town.
Coleman is accused of killing his wife and their two children last year in their home in Columbia, Illinois.
Defense attorneys wanted the trial moved, arguing pre-trial publicity would make it impossible for Coleman to receive a fair trial.
