(WHAS11)  There are new developments in the upcoming trial of the woman accused of trying to extort over $1 million from Rick Pitino.
 

Monday a judge denied Karen Cunagin Sypher’s motion to move the trial out of Louisville.
 

The judge said in court documents that pre-trial publicity has not been excessive and national publicity would have impacted jury pools nationwide as well.
 

The court found that any pre-trial prejudice would come out during jury selection anyway.
 

The trial is scheduled to begin at the end of July.
