A Stoddard County teenager accused of shooting and killing his neighbor has a new judge.
Cape Girardeau County Circuit Judge William Syler says he will preside over the owen Welty Case.
Welty was 13 when he was charged first-degree murder last November in the shooting death of his 64-year-old neighbor Don MccCollough.
Welty's lawyer wants to move the case out of Stoddard County and will now have to plead that motion in front of Judge Syler.
