New judge to be assigned to former Webb City principal's double murder case

Former Webb City High School Principal Mark Porter still has the same lawyer, but he is getting a new judge.

A decision on whether Springfield attorney Dee Wampler can withdraw as Porter's lawyer because he has not been paid has been delayed, but the judge in Porter's double murder case has recused himself because he is retiring this summer, well before Porter will come to trial.

Porter is charged with killing Gary and Jan Tyrell of Springfield. on April 30, 2014. Tyrrell was the assistant superintendent of the Mountain Grove school district when Porter was superintendent.
