FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Judge Gregory Heath granted the change of venue motion for Bradley Renfro and Austin Barrett at an evidentiary hearing on Monday.
In May of 2018, Almandinger was convicted of nine charges -- including murder in the first degree.
Dominic Johnson was convicted of first degree murder as well, in December of 2018. Grunwald’s death occurred in November of 2016. He was allegedly beaten with a pistol inside of a trailer before being shot.
Judge Heath felt that with the attention surrounding the first two suspects' trials, it would be difficult to find an impartial jury if Renfro and Barrett's trials remained in Anchorage.
