Earlier this week, Delke’s request for a change of venue was denied by an Appeals Court. Delke’s attorney had taken the issue to the Appeals Court after the request was denied by a Davidson County judge.

With the change of venue denied, the murder trial for Officer Delke will be held in Davidson County.
