WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - A defense attorney says the trial of a man charged in the murder of a southeastern Pennsylvania barbershop owner almost eight years ago should be moved or a jury brought in from another county because of news coverage of the case.

The Daily Local News of West Chester (https://bit.ly/1nRBb2E ) reports that attorney Laurence Harmelin filed a motion last week arguing that 37-year-old Duron Peoples of Coatesville would be unable to get a fair trial in Chester County.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Peoples in the October 2006 murder of 33-year-old 33-Jonas Suber. Authorities allege that Peoples ordered the shooting after a long-running feud that began when Suber began dating his former girlfriend.

Three other men have been sentenced to life prison terms in the case.
