ST. CHARLES (KMOV.com) – A judge has ruled that outside jurors will be brought into a St. Charles County courtroom for the Pamela Hupp trial.

Hupp’s lawyers had argued that it would be difficult for them to choose an impartial local jury.

Hupp is accused of fatally shooting 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger in August. It is believed Hupp lured him into her home by pretending to be a television producer in an effort to frame someone else.

Hupp faces first-degree murder and armed criminal action charges. She has entered a plea of not guilty.

Just last month, St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar announced he would seek the death penalty if Hupp is convicted.
