Change of Venue Hearing Thursday in Jason Carter Murder Case
KNOXVILLE, Iowa -- A Marion County man accused of killing his mother three years ago will find out Thursday if he'll be tried in a different county. A change of venue hearing for Jason Carter is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Carter requested the change of venue because of the publicity surrounding the murder of Shirley Carter and the civil wrongful death trial from 2017. A jury found Jason Carter responsible for his mother’s death after his father, Bill Carter, filed a civil lawsuit.
