The location of the jury trial for Doug Nitek, 45, Conrath, is still undecided, after a hearing June 27. Currently, the trial is set to begin Sept. 19.

Nitek is accused of shooting and killing a Rusk County Sheriff’s deputy in October 2016.

Judge Scott Needham began the hearing, by reminding those in attendance that Nitek withdrew his request to have a jury selected from outside of Rusk County during the previous hearing.

“He would like a jury of his peers, a jury from Rusk County,” said Nitek’s attorney Richard Jones.
