Marion County Judge Grant Hawkins granted a change of venue Thursday for the pending trial of IMPD Officer David Bisard.
While rendering his decision, the judge said media interest in the case remains strong. Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson confirms that the trial will move to one of three possible counties. She wouldn't name any of the options. Robinson says the cost of the holding the trial in Marion County was also an issue. She says it's simply easier to change venue before the trial rather than holding it in Marion County only to have a mistrial.
The case involves Bisard driving his squad car into three motorists in August 2010. That crash killed Eric Wells and hurt two others, Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly. Wells' dad Aaron says he believes the trial could've been fair if held in Marion County, but says he supports the decision to move it.
No date yet, but Robinson predicts the trial will likely get underway by mid to late next year. Bisard's attorney John Kautzman wouldn't talk with media after the hearing.
