ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A judge is considering a request to move the upcoming trial of a former Virginia Tech student charged in the slaying of a 13-year-old girl.

News media outlets report that Judge Robert Turk has taken under consideration the request from 19-year-old Natalie Keepers.

Keepers is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide the body of seventh-grader Nicole Lovell last year. Nineteen-year-old David Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder, abduction and hiding Lovell’s body. Their trials are scheduled for March.

The judge also ruled that Keepers can wear civilian clothes during the trial.
