Judge denies change of venue for Warwick murder trial
WILLMAR, Minn. -- A judge has denied a defense request to move the trial for a teen accused of murdering his grandmother.
District Judge David Mennis ruled Thursday that Robert “Robbie” Warwick’s attorney had not shown a reasonable likelihood that a fair trial could not be had in Kandiyohi County.
Warwick, 18, of Willmar, is scheduled to stand trial on first-degree murder charges starting on July 21 for the July 2013 killing of his grandmother, Lila Warwick, 79, of Willmar.
