      Key elements of Osage Beach Police Department probable cause statement:
      •Gregory George and Adrianna Hyten were in a personal relationship that began in early 2010. They began living together in June 2010.

      •In September 2010, Hyten began a relationship with another man.

      •Hyten and George began living together at the apartment on Mace Road on Oct. 2, 2010

      •At 12:14 a.m. on Oct 10, 2010, George and Hyten exchanged text messages.

      •Hyten got off work at Steak n’ Shake in Osage Beach at 2:02 a.m.

      •Hyten sent two text messages to other acquaintances at 2:30 a.m. In both messages, she asked the recipient to call the police and have them respond to the apartment. Neither of the recipients read the messages until later that day.

      •George sent text messages to another acquaintance at 3:18 a.m., indicating that Hyten had kicked him out of the apartment and that he was leaving.

      •Surveillance video shows George went to El Rancho Truck Stop in Eldon at 5:16 a.m.

      •At 11:21 a.m., George called 911 to report that this roommate was dead.

      •Osage Beach Police Det. Kevin Friend interviewed George at 2:20 p.m. Friend determined that some of George’s statements about his activity that morning were false.

      •Detectives found Hyten’s blood and DNA on the driver’s seat of George’s vehicle.
  • The possibility of new evidence has delayed the trial of the man accused of killing a young Osage Beach woman.
    Jurors from Johnson County will be bused to Camden County when Gregory L. George stands trial in October for the murder of his roommate, Adrianna Hyten.
    George is facing one count of first-degree murder and one count of armed criminal action in the death of Hyten. Hyten, then 21, was found stabbed to death in her apartment on Mace Road in Osage Beach on Oct. 10, 2010. An Osage Beach detective brought a murder charge against George for Hyten’s death in April 2011.
    The development has led to a continuance in the trial of accused murderer Gregory George. He will not go to trial this week in Camden County as scheduled. According to Camden County Prosecutor Brian Keedy, forensics technology not available during the initial investigation has led to new evidence.
    During a pretrial hearing, Judge Kenneth Hayden upheld several motions that public defender Heather Vodnansky had filed including a motion to preserve all notes on the investigation and another motion to preserve physical evidence. The third motion to enter Missouri Supreme Court rules 4-3.6 and 4-3.8 was also upheld. The two rules govern what a prosecuting attorney can say to the public regarding the case.
    Vodnansky originally sought a change of venue. Vodnansky and Keedy approached Judge Hayden's bench for an off-the-record conversation for approximately 10 minutes.
    According to Keedy, Judge Hayden agreed to bring in an outside jury from Cass County for George's murder trial. George’s trial met further delay when Judge Bruce Colyer recused himself from the case and Hayden took the assignment.
    George is being held in the Camden County jail with no bond allowed.
