Lee County- The Tri-State Crematory trial will be big news and jurors from south Georgia will travel north to hear the case.

Judge James Bodiford ruled Brent Marsh can't get a fair trial from jurors in Walker County, but he doesn't want to move the trial. Thursday, he ordered that a jury be brought in from Lee County.

The trial could be lengthy and inconvenient for jurors who'll be 200-miles from home, but some Lee Countians say people should be eager to serve.

"People, well, they want to have something to say, but if you don't get involved as a citizen in the community you don't have any right to gripe or fuss or anything," said Wendy Breckenridge, a Lee County resident.

Marsh was indicted on 787 felony charges of theft, fraud, and abuse of a body for dumping corpses that were supposed to be cremated. The trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 11th in LaFayette.
