Rape and Murder Trial Moves to Warren County

The trial for five people charged in a 1987 rape and murder in Muhlenberg County is moved to Warren County.

On Oct. 2, 1987, police discovered the body of 20-year-old Corinna Mullen in the trunk of her car.

She had been bludgeoned.

Her official cause of death was asphyxiation.

The case went unsolved after Mullen's boyfriend, Jimmie Royce Springer Jr., was acquitted of her murder in 1988.

Last year, police found new information in the 20-year-old case and a grand jury indicted five individuals, including Springer.

He is charged with rape, sodomy and perjury.

The trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 19.
