EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A man charged in the stabbing death of his estranged girlfriend at a western Pennsylvania car wash is asking a judge to bar prosecutors from using some evidence in his trial this summer.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat (https://bit.ly/1niAtzG ) reports that 21-year-old Demetrius Gibson of Johnstown also wants the trial moved or a jury selected from another area.

Gibson is charged in the Aug. 6 slaying of 21-year-old Elizabeth Ann Miller in the parking lot of the Dollar Car Wash in Johnstown’s Moxham neighborhood.

Defense attorneys argued Tuesday that authorities didn’t show sufficient probable cause when seeking search warrants after the stabbing.

Jury selection is scheduled Aug. 25, and the judge said he will likely wait until then to decide whether a panel of Cambria County residents can be seated.
