The relatives of Delaware courthouse shooter Thomas Matusiewicz will be tried in Delaware on charges of conspiracy and stalking the son’s ex-wife and her friend.

A federal judge denied their motion to move the trial out of the state.

Their attorneys had argued that there had been too much publicity for them to get a fair trial.

David Matusiewicz, his mother. Lenore and his sister Amy Gonzalez have denied any knowledge of the father’s plans.

Thomas Matusiewicz fatally shot his son’s ex-wife Christine Belford and a friend at the courthouse in New Castle County in February of last year. 

The father killed himself after exchanging gunfire with security officers.
