Mercer County Common Pleas Judge Thomas Dobson ruled that Scott Dunn's statements to police can be used at his trial in the beating death of Brandi Montgomery Dunn. Dunn is also accused of setting fire to the home with Brandi inside.
Next week, Dobson will decide whether or not there should be a change of venue as requested by Dunn's lawyer, Stephen Misko. The defense contends that intense media coverage has skewed the case against Dunn.
