Judge Won't Move Teen's Ohio School Shooting Trial

Posted: Updated:

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - A judge in Ohio has rejected a renewed defense bid to move the aggravated murder trial of an 18-year-old charged in shooting deaths of three students at a high school.
    
In a ruling filed last week, Judge David Fuhry (FYOOR'-ee) in Chardon says many people having preconceived notions about the case against T.J. Lane doesn't mean an unbiased jury cannot be seated.
    
The judge could decide later to move the trial based on what he hears from prospective jurors in grief-stricken Geauga (jee-AW'-guh) County.
    
Prosecutors say Lane fired 10 shots at a group of students in the Chardon High School cafeteria last February. He was at the school waiting for a bus to his alternative school.
    
The trial has been postponed indefinitely amid new evidence that hasn't been publicly specified.
