On Tuesday, March 29, 2016, Robert Campbell’s continuance request was granted by Jasper County Circuit Court Judge Gayle Crane, resulting in Campbell’s murder trial being moved from April 6th to July 5, 2016.

Robert Lee Campbell, d/o/b 7-09-1944, of Willard, Missouri, is charged with arranging the kidnapping and murder of Russell and Rebecca Porter, of Willard, in April of 2011. The trial will take place in Joplin, due to a change of venue that moved the trial from Taney County.
