---- — BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana judge has rejected a change of venue request for a second man charged in the June killing of a 19-year-old woman.

Greene Superior Court Judge Dena Martin denied Jordan Buskirk’s request today. But the Greene County Daily World reports Martin ordered that a jury should be selected from another county for the 25-year-old man’s murder trial, just like for co-defendant Randal Crosley.

Buskirk and the 26-year-old Crosley are charged in Katelyn Wolfe’s killing.

Both Jasonville men are being held without bond on murder, conspiracy to commit murder and other charges.

Wolfe’s body was found June 10 in a rural lake with a 20-pound weight tied to it. She had been last seen walking a day earlier in Linton, about 70 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
