HOUSTON, TX - The lawyer for the man accused in the death of 7-year old Jazmine Barnes said accused gunman, Larry Woodruffe has denied involvement in Jazmine's murder. Attorney Lisa Andrews requested his trail be moved from Harris County on Thursday morning.
24-year old Larry Woodruffe faced a judge for the first time Thursday morning since being charged with capital murder. His lawyer, Lisa Andrews filed a change of venue motion during the hearing. Andrews is concerned that social media and the attention the case garnered may not give her client the right to a fair trial.
Andrews is also asking city leaders to comply with the code professional responsibility. She believes law enforcement and leaders in the community may have a bias towards Woodruffe. Woodruffe's alleged accomplice, Eric Black Jr. is also charged with capital murder.
Both are being held without bond.
