Judge grants change of venue in Bushey case

by Pam Warnke

JUNEAU COUNTY (WAOW)-- A Juneau County judge has agreed to a change of venue in the case against Alan Bushey.

The self-proclaimed religious leader is accused of encouraging one of his followers to hide a corpse in a bathrooom for months.

Prosecutors say they then collected her Social Security checks.

There's no word yet on where the trial will be held.

The defense argued intense publicity of the case has tainted the potential jury pool in the county.
