Second change of venue ordered for accused Rowan Ford murderer

Online Phelps County Circuit Court records indicate that the trial of Chris Collings, one of two men charged with the brutal November 2007 rape and murder of nine-year-old Rowan Ford of Stella, will be held in another county.

This marks the second change of venue for Collings, since the rape and murder of Rowan Ford, a fourth grader at Triway Elementary School, occurred in Barry County.

Court records do not give any indication of where the trial will be held.

The other man charged with the crimes, Rowan Ford's stepfather, David Wesley Spears, is scheduled to go to trial this summer in Pulaski County.
