UPDATE: A jury for the Delphi murders case will come from Allen County. According to court documents filed today, Special Judge Frances Gull determined the jury will be drawn from Allen County but the trial will still take place in Carroll County. On Monday, the judge said the jury could have come from St. Joseph County, but now that is not the case.

Jurors in the Delphi murder suspect's trial will come from South Bend or Fort Wayne.The Carrol County prosecutor and attorneys for Richard Allen reached a "partial agreement" that would pull jury members from either St. Joseph County or Allen County. The agreement was filed late Friday and was entered this morning (1/23). The judge will decide which county to make jury selections from. Defense attorneys for Allen requested a change of venue two months ago They stated the risk of a tainted jury pool. Special Judge Frances Gull said it would be difficult to find a jury in Delphi. The judge then decided to pull the jury from an outside county but hold the trial in Carrol County.
