SARNIA, Ont. -- The trial for two people accused in the death of a southern Ontario kindergarten teacher will not be held in Sarnia, where the woman was from.
Michael MacGregor, 20, and Tanya Bogdanovich, 32, are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Noelle Paquette.
Paquette's body was found in January 2013 in a woodlot southeast of Sarnia one day after she went missing.
She was last seen leaving a New Year's Eve party.
Lawyers for MacGregor and Bogdanovich had requested a change of location earlier this month.
MacGregor's lawyer says Justice Bruce Thomas has now ruled that the trial will not be held in Sarnia.
A new location for the trial will be decided by a regional senior justice.
The trial is expected to begin on April 4, 2016 and is expected to last three to four months.
