FAIRFIELD, Ill. (WFIE) - A hearing on the motion for a new trial has been set for the Fairfield man found guilty in the 2014 murder of Megan Nichols.

Murbarger was found guilty of murder last month following a week long trial in Fairfield, Illinois.

During that trial, an FBI expert revealed a red stain in the back of Murbarger’s car was Megan’s blood.
The defense argued the pair were in a relationship, so her DNA being in his car shouldn’t be shocking.
