Judge orders murder trial moved

Circuit Judge John W. Booth ordered Wednesday that the first-degree murder trial of Gary Lynn Bushell begin April 16 in Sumter County Circuit Court. Booth ruled to move the trial in response to a motion filed by Bushell's defense attorneys. He said the change was a result of prejudicial pretrial publicity.

Bushell is charged with murdering 18-year-old Diane Jean Wentworth on April 8, 1983, in Hernando County.
