INDIANAPOLIS — A woman who's one of three people charged in a deadly Indianapolis house explosion will stand trial in a different county.
Prosecutors agreed at a Thursday court hearing that Monserrate Shirley's trial should be held outside Marion County. Prosecutors and defense attorneys must now submit a list of proposed counties for the judge to consider as the new trial location.
The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1x66Q9K ) Shirley's attorney, Jim Voyles, said at Thursday's hearing he'd like his client's trial to be held in late 2016.
Shirley, her then-boyfriend Mark Leonard and his brother, Bob Leonard, face murder and arson charges arson in the 2012 blast that killed a couple who lived next door.
Prosecutors allege the trio rigged the explosion at Shirley's home in a scheme to collect $300,000 in insurance.
