A motion for a change of venue was denied for the trial of Angela Gray, 39, of Muldrow, who is charged in relation to an ATV accident on Sept. 1, 2013, that left a teenager, Christian Mayberry of Muldrow, with a severe brain injury. Mayberry and his parents are now in Florida where he is undergoing rehabilitation. District Judge Jeff Payton denied the motion for a change of venue, filed by Gray's attorney, Gary Buckles of Poteau, Monday in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw. Buckles based his argument on the amount of publicity the case has received in the media. Judge Payton also set a jury trial sounding docket date for April 2 for Gray, and said a district court jury docket is set for May 11 through 22. "Both attorneys said they will be ready to go then," Judge Payton said.
