Robert Blake Blurton

The capital murder trial of a man accused of the brutal murder of his relatives last June in Benton County, MO has been moved to Clay County on a change of venue.

Prosecutors say Robert Blake Blurton allegedly bound and shot his aunt and uncle, Sharon and Donnie Luetjen, and their 15 year-old daughter Taron last June during a robbery at the family's Cole Camp home.

Attorney General Chris Koster's office is prosecuting the case.

On May 16, 2010, 'Music in the Park' will be held at Water Tower Park in Cole Camp from 2pm to 5pm in memory of Taron, Donnie and Sharon Luetjen. ALL proceeds benefit the Luetjen Music Memorial Scholarship Fund.

REgarding Robert Blurton... what's the latest there? Did they ever have his preliminary hearing in Clay county? Do you happen to know the case number? I'm publisher of The Anderson County Review in Garnett, Ks., and trying to follow this.
