SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The trial of a 20-year-old Denison man accused of slaying two elderly people and trying to burn their bodies has been moved to Sioux City.

A judge on Wednesday announced that the trial of Jayden Chapman will take place April 28 in Woodbury County District Court. He is charged with first-degree murder and second-degree arson in the murders of 80-year-old Marvin Huesling and 81-year-old Alice Huisenga.

Another man, 26-year-old Michael Schenk, was sentenced earlier this month to two consecutive life terms in prison in connection with the murders. The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1EYBLpV ) that a change of venue was ordered prior to Schenk’s trial.

Authorities say Schenk and Chapman shot the pair at a trailer home in Deloit in March 2014 and then set it on fire.
