ABERDEEN (AP) - The defense for an Aberdeen man accused of stabbing a woman to death wants the trial moved out of Brown County.

The American News reports that John Hemminger's attorneys worry about the ability to seat an unbiased jury, based on questionnaires of potential jurors.

Judge Scott Myren will consider the change-of-venue motion during a Thursday hearing.

The 34-year-old Hemminger is charged with murder in the death of 26-year-old Jessica Goebel, who died after being stabbed in January 2015. He's scheduled for a three-week trial next month.
