Darren Winans (l.) & Matthew Laurin

We could find out tomorrow if two men accused of allegedly murdering Bob and Ellen Sheldon (b.)last October will receive separate trials and changes of venue.

At this point, Darren Winans, 20, Jasper, and Matthew Laurin, 19, Springfield, cases are consolidated. They are scheduled to be in Jasper County courtroom on the motion hearings at 8:30 a.m.


Prosecutors have filed a motion asking that Judge Gayle Crane deny the change of venue motions....they would like a jury imported into Jasper County to hear the cases.

Investigators say the two men stabbed the Sheldons and their dog to death when they broke in their home looking for weapons to trade for drugs.

Laurin and Winans are facing first-degree murder, armed criminal action, and burglary charges connected to the case.
