OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) - The attorney for a man charged with four deaths at a Kansas farm wants the trial moved to a different county.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Lf9Xlt ) the attorney for 30-year-old Kyle Flack of Ottawa has filed a motion to move the capital murder trial out of Franklin County.

Flack is charged with murder and rape after two men, a woman and her daughter were found dead near Ottawa in 2013. Flack has pleaded not guilty.

The motion for a change of venue contends Flack cannot get a fair trial in Franklin County because pretrial publicity has prejudiced potential jurors. The motion doesn’t name a preferred new site for the trial.

A motion hearing is scheduled June 30 to determine whether court documents sealed by judges should be unsealed.
