GOLDEN CITY, Mo. – A motion for a change of venue has been filed for Bobby Bourne, who accused of murder, kidnapping and statutory rape of 12-year-old Adriaunna Horton in August 2013.

According to online court documents, the motion was filed today, Feb. 26, by Thomas Jacquinot, Bourne’s attorney.

Bourne previously plead not guilty during a hearing Feb. 19.

According to the court documents, after being arrested, Bourne admitted to picking up Horton near Hazel's Park. He claimed Horton later ran away from him, fell down and died from injuries in the fall.

The probable cause statement says Bourne led investigators to a wooded area southwest of Golden City, where he said Horton's body would be found.

A judge has not yet responded to the motion for a change of venue.

Bourne is set to appear in court for a pre-hearing conference on March 17 at 1 p.m.
