Yosemite Murder Trial Will Not Be Moved

July 16, 2002|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Lawyers for Cary Stayner lost a bid to get the Yosemite homicides trial moved again just before the final jury was picked Monday.

Despite publicity so intense that 96% of the jury pool said they had seen or read something about the case, Stayner should be able to get a fair trial in Santa Clara County, Judge Thomas C. Hastings said.

Stayner is being tried for the February 1999 killings of Carole Sund, 42, and her 15-year-old daughter Juli, both of Eureka, and Silvina Pelosso, 16, of Cordoba.
