STODDARD COUNTY, Mo. - Family members of a teenager facing murder charges in Stoddard County could get their wish after calling for a change of venue.
Owen Welty, 14, appeared in court Wednesday morning. During that appearance, the court granted his attorney's motion for a change of judge.
Once that new judge is appointed he or she will decide if Welty's trial should be moved out of Stoddard County.
