Jury In Fox Lake Murder Trial To Be From Outside Dodge County

(Juneau) A Dodge County judge on Wednesday denied a defense motion to move the trial of a Fox Lake murder suspect out of the county. 37-year-old Laverne Ware Jr. is facing felony charges of First Degree Intentional Homicide, Hiding a Corpse, Incest and Felon In Possession of a Firearm in connection with the December 2016 death of his girlfriend and first cousin, Sesalie Dixon. The 27-year-old Dixon was found in the cab of Ware’s pick-up truck inside a Fox Lake garage with a gunshot wound to the head. While Judge Brian Pfitzinger denied the change of venue motion, he did grant a motion to have the jury selected from outside Dodge County. Ware’s attorney yesterday also moved to dismiss the case, accusing the district attorney of “vindictive prosecution” but that motion was denied. A motion to appoint a special prosecutor was also denied. The judge yesterday also struck District Attorney Kurt Klomberg from the defense counsel’s witness list. Earlier this month, Judge Pfitzinger did agree to postpone Ware’s two-week jury trial from next month until mid-September.
