Trial for Man Charged in Fatal Wreck to Remain in Durham

Posted January 6, 1998 12:00 a.m. EST

— A man accused of killing a 4-year-old girl in an accident on a Durham highway will be tried in a Durham courtroom.

Monday, a judge denied Timothy Blackwell's request for a change of venue. Blackwell, 36, slammed into a van last February, killing Megan Dail. He is charged in connection with drunken driving, and has a long history of convictions for doing so.

No court date has been set.
