SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of killing a Sloan resident says news coverage about the case would lead to an unfair trial, so he wants it moved out of Woodbury County.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1V7TXDl ) that 30-year-old Timothy Schroeder also asked in a handwritten motion Thursday that the court appoint an investigator and a second attorney to help Schroeder with his case. He did not name a county he preferred for his trial.

Schroeder was arrested in February and charged with murder in the slaying of 29-year-old Dustin Wilder. Schroeder’s wife told investigators that he fired two or three shots inside Wilder’s home. Wilder was later found unconscious and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A hearing on Schroeder’s requests is scheduled for Oct. 6.
