Heather Elvis' mother Debbi Elvis listens as Circuit Court Judge R. Markley Dennis says the Sidney Moorer retrial will be held in Georgetown County. Dennis ruled earlier to have Moorer tried in Georgetown County after a jury could not reach a verdict in June. Moorer is charged with kidnapping Heather Elvis. His wife, Tammy Moorer, also faces kidnapping charges but her case has not gone to court. The state argued that a jury could be found in Horry County. However the court ordered the retrial be in Georgetown County partially because of the media attention to the case. The state argued the same media covers Horry and Georgetown counties so if another jury pool is to be used, it should be from an area not covered by the same media. Dennis also denied a request from the state to have an outside jury brought in for two weeks to have the trail at the Horry County Courthouse in Conway.
