Scottsville Trial Change of Venue Granted to Bowling Green

A double murder trial, first heard in Scottsville, Ky., will be re-tried this time in Bowling Green.

A change of venue was granted for the second murder trial of 39-year-old Lonnie Freeman and 32-year-old Dustin Asher.

You may remember the trial in Allen County was disrupted shortly after it began, when someone called a bomb threat in to the courthouse.

A mistrial was declared last October 2006.

The two men are charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence in the 2005 deaths of Danny Froedge of Park City and Kelly Johnson of Smiths Grove.

Froedge and Johnson were found shot and burned inside a truck in Allen County.

A judge will be appointed during a pretrial conference set for June 26, 2007.
