Police chief murder trial moved back to North Alabama

There are new developments in the murder trial of a man accused of shooting a Valley police chief.

The trial for Brian Butler will now be held in Marshall County. Butler and Jerid Eldridge are accused of shooting and killing Grant police chief Verlon Lemaster in August 2003.

Butler's trial was moved to St. Clair County because of the extensive publicity of the case.

But today a judge decided to move it back to Marshall County. A new trial date is set for November 13th.
