FORD COUNTY -- A request to move the trial of a Cullom woman charged with killing a foster child has been rejected.

Heather Lamie is charged in the death of 4-year-old Kianna Rudesill in May of 2011.

Lamie's attorneys had argued media coverage and social media outlets had tainted a potential Livingston County jury pool.

A Ford County judge disagreed.

The trial is set to start in January in Ford County, but it could be pushed back.
