Harrisonville, MO - The murder trial of Kylr Yust will remain in Cass County, but the jury will be brought from across the state in St. Charles County.

Yust is accused of killing Jessica Runions, 21, and Kara Kopetsky, 17.  Their remains were found in April 2017 in a wooded area of Cass County.

Defense attorneys for Yust argued in court for a change of venue. 

A compromise was reached to seat a jury from St. Charles County for the trial in Cass County.

A pretrial conference is set for October 1, 2018.
