The defendant charged in connection with the August death of a Hannibal woman was granted a second change of venue with the same presiding judge.

Travis Lane, 49, of Hannibal, was granted his request for a change of judge and venue by Judge Rachel Bringer Shepherd on Monday, Oct. 19, according to previous Courier-Post reporting. In October, a Supreme Court order assigned Judge Russell E. Steele to preside over the case in Adair County. Following a phone conference between Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David N. Clayton and defense attorney Milan C. Berry, Lane's venue was moved to St. Charles County, according to online court documents.

Lane faces a felony charge of second degree murder in connection with the August death of Jennie Jo Blankenship and felony charges of burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

Lane remains incarcerated in the Marion County Jail. He initially faced felony charges of burglary and possession of a controlled substance, related to a separate incident. Each count carried a $50,000 cash only bond. Lane was subsequently charged with second degree murder while incarcerated. That felony charge carried a $25,000 cash only bond, according to online court documents.
