SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - The trial of a man charged with killing a southwest Missouri sheriff’s deputy will be moved to Greene County.

Joshua Brown, of El Dorado Springs, is charged with second-degree murder and three other felonies in the November 2014 death of 25-year-old Cedar County sheriff’s deputy Matthew Chism.

Chism was killed in a shootout with 28-year-old William Collins. He was a passenger in a car driven by Brown that fled after Chism tried to stop it in El Dorado Springs. Collins also died in the gunfire.

The Springfield News-Leader reports (https://sgfnow.co/1ANrAGj ) Brown’s attorney argued that publicity in the case would prevent a fair trial in Cedar County. A judge agreed and on Monday transferred the case to Greene County.

The trial is scheduled for Nov. 2.
