Douglas County jury picked to hear case of 1979 Ladysmith killing
A jury from Douglas County will hear the trial of a Ladysmith man accused of being a hit-man for his brother in the slaying of a college student.
Rusk County Circuit Judge Fredrick Henderson approved a change of venue yesterday in the case Harry John Rogers, 55.
The trial began in Ladysmith earlier this month. It was halted after the judge noted that all the jurors who were selected knew something about the case.
