Sheley change-of-venue hearing this afternoon in Missouri

HILLSBORO, Mo. – A change-of-venue hearing for a Sterling man facing the death sentence if convicted of killing what would be his seventh and eighth victims is scheduled for 1 this afternoon.

Nicholas Sheley, 36, of Sterling, already serving six life sentences for slayings in Sterling, Rock Falls and Galesburg, is being tried in Jefferson County Court in Missouri for the bludgeoning deaths of Jill and Tom Estes of Sherwood, Arkansas, who were killed in the parking lot of a Festus, Missouri, hotel on June 30, 2008.

Sheley said in his motion that he is unable to get a fair trial in Jefferson County.
