Lawyers Want Trial For SIU Student’s Death Moved From Carbondale
(Carbondale, IL) — Lawyers for the man accused of killing a Southern Illinois University student in 2014 want his trial moved away from campus. Gaege Bethune’s lawyers this week asked a judge to move his trial out of Jackson County and Carbondale. Police say Bethune beat and robbed Pravin Varughese in some woods behind a local restaurant in 2014. Varughese was later found dead. Bethune’s lawyers say he can’t get a fair trial that close to the university.
