FAIRMONT — The two men indicted in the 1974 triple Windmill Park murders will share a pretrial hearing on June 25.

According to records obtained at the Marion County Circuit Court, a hearing for Eddie Jack Washington and Phillip Reese Bush is set for 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, in front of Circuit Judge Michael Aloi.

Neal Jay Hamilton, representing Washington, said the hearing will address several motions.

“The first is in regard to a change of venue for the trial, whether it should be held in Marion County. It’s pretty normal to do this for a high-profile case,” Hamilton said.
