The murder trial of Teri Dean-Morrison, which was moved to Jasper County on a change of venue, is scheduled to get underway on June 3rd.
Dean-Morrison is charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence, armed criminal action and hindering prosecution for her part in the death of Carl Glenn Anderson who was last seen at a gathering at Dean-Morrison's home near Hootentown in late February. Anderson's remains were found on property belonging to Earl Kearney, a former boyfriend of Dean-Morrison's in March.
Judge Alan Blankenship moved the case of Eugene Crider, who is facing the same charges as Dean-Morrison, to Newton County. Cheryl Crawford's murder trial is scheduled to begin on September 9th in Laclede County, where it was moved on a change of venue. Both Crider and Crawford's cases will be revisited on February 13th.
Blankenship says he hopes to conduct motion hearings and pre-trial conferences in the alleged murderers cases in Stone County to help ease the burden of defense attorney's and prosecutor Matt Selby.
An attorney representing Krystal Buras, of Spring, Texas, who is charged with tampering with physical evidence for allegedly removing items from Crider's truck that authorities believe were used in the commission of Anderson's murder, appeared for her on November 13th. A plea or trial date is expected at Buras' next appearance, which is scheduled for December 10th.
