LEXINGTON — One of six Missouri men accused of molesting young relatives two decades ago has been granted a change of venue.
A Lexington County judge on Monday approved moving 54-year-old Burrell Mohler Jr.'s case on several felony abuse charges to Saline County. Mohler's next court date was scheduled for May 3.
Also Monday, the judge scheduled a June 7 court date for Mohler's 48-year-old brother Jared Mohler, who faces three felony counts of rape and other charges.
Prosecutors have charged the two men, along with an uncle, two other brothers and their father, Burrell Mohler Sr., with raping young relatives over about a decade beginning in the mid-1980s.
Changes of venue were granted earlier for Burrell Mohler Sr. and his brother, Darrel Mohler.
