BIG SPRING - No change of venue for the murder trial of a Big Spring man accused of shooting and killing a teenager back in May.

Jury selection for the trial of 18-year-old Christopher Olivarez will go on as planned this coming Monday.

Police say Olivarez killed 16 year Justin Hernandez at a party in the early morning of May 30th.

The parents of Olivarez wanted the trial moved out of Howard County, because they didn't feel their son would get a fair trial.

That motion was denied on Wednesday morning.
