ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A Montgomery County, Missouri judge has ruled to transfer the high profile murder case for undocumented immigrant Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino to the St. Louis City Circuit Court. 

Officials with the Missouri Attorney General's Office said they will be assisting Montgomery County Prosecutor Nathan Carroz with the death penalty case in St. Louis City Circuit Courts. It was Serrano-Vitorino's attorney who requested the change in venue.  

Serrano-Vitorino pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in Montgomery County. He is accused of killing 49-year-old Randy Nordman at Nordman's home in New Florence on March 8, 2016.

Serrano-Vitorino is also charged with murdering four other people in Wyandotte County, Kansas. The killing-spree received national attention.

According to court documents, Serrano-Vitorino was in the United States illegally after having previously been deported through formal proceedings in California in 2004.  

There are currently no court hearing dates scheduled in the first-degree murder case.
