Change of venue for Clark murder trial

By Shari Harris,

  On Feb. 19, a hearing was held for Kenneth R. Clark, Jr. before Judge John D. Beger of the 25th Circuit Court at the Texas County Courthouse. Clark is charged with first degree murder, armed criminal action, and kidnapping – facilitating a felony – inflicting injury – terrorizing – first degree. On August 19, 2018, Susan J. Campbell was abducted from the Houston Walmart parking lot. Campbell was discovered about two hours later, deceased from several gunshot wounds. Clark, who had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to his face and head, was also in Clark’s Nissan Altima in the parking lot of Walt’s convenience store in Roby.
  During last week’s hearing, Judge Beger ruled a change of venue to Pulaski County after a pre-trial conference, which is scheduled to be held at 9 a.m. on May 21 in front of Judge Beger at the Texas County Courthouse.
