DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – One of three people charged in the murder of two Krystal employees is still trying to get his trial moved.

Later today, attorneys for Jordaan Creque will have a hearing for a change of venue for Creque’s trial, which is scheduled to start soon.  The motion hearing is at 1:30 p.m.

The Morgan County District Attorney wants the trial to stay in Decatur, where the crime happened.

Creque is charged with capital murder, robbery and attempted robbery in connection with the August 2011 deaths of two Krystal employees.  Investigators say Creque and two others went into the Krystal on 6th Avenue in Decatur and shot and killed Jesse Aguilar and Jeffrey Graff.

Cassandra Eldred and Ezekiel Gholston are also charged in this case.

Creque previously pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, but his lawyers dropped that plea after deciding not to pursue it.

WHNT News 19 is covering the trial.  We’ll keep you updated on and in our newscasts.
