KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A Flathead County judge has denied a motion to move the trial in the case of a man charged with killing his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son.

Attorneys for Brandon Newberry sought a change of venue in October, arguing Newberry couldn’t receive a fair trial because of the misinformation, rumors and inflammatory news articles circulating in the county.

Prosecutors opposed the motion. The Flathead Beacon reports (https://bit.ly/1Ih1lGH ) District Judge Heidi Ulbricht denied the motion on Nov. 19. She noted the county had held numerous high profile trials in the past.

Newberry has pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide in the February death of Forrest Groshelle. His trial is scheduled for March 14.
