Suspects in Student's Death Get Changes of Venue
MARYVILLE, Mo. - Two suspects have been granted changes in venue for their trials in the beating death of a Northwest Missouri State University student.
Kevin Mooney and Tony Overlin, both of Bethany, are accused of killing 21-year-old Tomarken Smith of St. Louis last Sept. 14 outside a Maryville bar.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports Mooney was granted a change of venue Monday to Atchison County, where his trial is to begin Sept. 30. Last week, Overlin's trial was moved to Buchanan County for a Nov. 1 start.
Both are charged with second-degree murder and first-degree assault. Police say the men had an altercation with Smith inside the bar and assaulted him when he left.
