Murder suspect wants trial moved


One of the people facing charges related to a double murder in Syracuse, Ind. wants his trial moved.

Attorneys for Brandon Thomas Woody, 22,  filed a motion for change of venue on Thursday. Woody and two others are facing murder charges.

On February 19, Josh Knisley, 19, was found dead inside a home on East Main Street. Tara Thornburg, 23, died later at a hospital.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Brandon Woody, Kyle Dehart and Thomas Hursey went to Thornburg's house with the intention of stealing marijuana. That information was provided by Hursey.

While police were investigating the crime, Woody took to social media. Using a Facebook account, believed to belong to him, "I wasn't involved," was posted on the page.

In total, five people are facing charges.

A pre-trial hearing is set for Thomas on April 27 at 3:00 p.m. in Kosciusko County's Superior Court.
