Judge Denies Change of Venue in 1960 Murder Case

Posted: Updated:

EDINBURG – A judge has denied a request for a change of venue in a 1960 murder case.

John Feit is accused in the murder of Irene Garza. He was in court last week asking Judge Luis Singleterry for a change of venue.

Feit’s attorney said there’s been so much publicity about the case there is no way Feit can be tried in Hidalgo County and get a fair, unbiased trial.

The trial date is set for Sept. 11.

Feit has been in custody since February of last year after being arrested in Arizona. He remains at the Hidalgo County jail.
