A Franklin County Judge says the Vicente Ruiz murder trial will move forward.

The Judge decided the jury will be brought back in tomorrow morning to talk about the change in the trial schedule. If everyone's scheduling works out, opening statements will start Monday.

Defense attorneys are considering taking an appeal to the Supreme Court.

Ruiz is accused of five murders in a Pasco auto body shop 23 years ago.
