SEMINOLE COUNTY, OK (KFOR) – Rex and Rebecca Clark have been granted a change of venue in their case. The couple is accused of abusing and killing their nephew, Colton Clark.

Colton disappeared in April of 2006. Rescue crews and authorities never found any signs of Colton. Authorities ultimately arrested Colton’s aunt and uncle, Rex and Rebecca Clark, in connection to his disappearance in September of 2015.

It was when the case reopened in 2015 that investigators detailed instances of alleged abuse inside the Clark home.

According to KFOR, the arrest affidavit alleged that “Rex used a red and white electric cattle prod to create an electrical shock to Homer and Colton’s genitals.”

Homer, Colton’s brother, told investigators about a brutal beating in early March 2006. Homer said he saw Colton on the couch afterward, and his face was “black and blue.” He told investigators he was not sure Colton was breathing.

Rex and Rebecca Clark have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit a felony, child abuse and child neglect charges.

On Monday, the Seminole County judge moved the October trial from Seminole County to Pontotoc County.
