AMPBELL COUNTY, KY (FOX19)– A woman accused of killing her boyfriend has been denied a change of venue in her second murder trial.

The request was denied Thursday, however the court order is sealed, so the reason behind the denial is unknown. 

Hubers is accused of shooting 29-year-old Ryan Poston inside his Highland Heights apartment in 2012. Hubers and Poston dated on-and-off for two years before he was killed. Hubers claimed she shot him in self-defense.

In 2015, Hubers was convicted of murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison, but a judge tossed the conviction after discovering a juror should not have been allowed to serve in the trial.

Her trial is expected to start next week.
