Mercer County Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas R. Dobson ruled that Scott Dunn will face trial in Mercer County. Dunn had sought a change of venue citing the high amount of media coverage over the murder of Brandi Montgomery Dunn.
Dunn is accused of beating Brandi to death inside her parents' Grove City home, then setting the home on fire to conceal the crime.
The murder was the first in Grove City since the 1960s and brought media attention from national networks, such as FOX News.
