Latest Davis Trial to Stay in Brazos County

By  | 

A Bryan man charged with capital murder will most likely learn his fate in a Brazos County courtroom.

Thursday morning, 85th District Judge J.D. Langley declined the request of Willie Davis' defense attorneys to hold the trial elsewhere.

"Motion to change venue has been denied, but I'll reconsider it after I've had a chance to look at the panel," Langley said.

Langley will take the issue up again before the trial.

The defense argued because of extensive media coverage, Davis wouldn't be able to get a fair trial.

The 66-year-old is charged with capital murder, stemming from the 2003 shooting death of Tommy Andrade.

Davis is accused of taking two injured hitmen across state lines after the shooting.

Davis' two sons are serving time for the crime.

Andrade and a third hired gunman died that night.

Police say it was all part of a drug deal gone wrong.
