ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - The defense for an Aberdeen man accused of stabbing a woman to death wants the trial moved out of Brown County.

The American News reports (https://bit.ly/1WpNasp ) that John Hemminger’s attorneys worry about the ability to seat an unbiased jury, based on questionnaires of potential jurors.

Judge Scott Myren will consider the change-of-venue motion during a Thursday hearing.

The 34-year-old Hemminger is charged with murder in the death of 26-year-old Jessica Goebel, who died after being stabbed in January 2015. He’s scheduled for a three-week trial next month.
