Defense Attorneys Attempt To Move School Shooting Trial

Jan 2, 2013

Lawyers for the Ohio teenager charged in the Chardon High School shootings are renewing their effort to move the trial out of the grief-stricken community.

Attorneys for 18-year-old T.J. Lane asked the trial judge in Geauga County for permission to make their case in a sealed document. The defense didn't elaborate in the motion filed late Monday. There's no immediate comment from prosecutors, who have opposed moving the trial. The judge has indicated he wants to wait and see if an unbiased jury can be selected in Chardon. Lane's trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 14. He faces up to life in prison without chance of parole if convicted in the Feb. 27 attack that killed three students .
