YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — The trial of two of the remaining suspects in a fraternity house shooting in Ohio that left one man dead and 11 others wounded has been moved to another county.
The trial of Mark Jones and Jamelle Jackson in the Feb. 6, 2011, shooting near Youngstown State University will begin Nov. 26 in Akron.
Judge John Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court agreed to a defense motion to move the trial because of pretrial publicity in Youngstown.
He overruled a defense motion for appointment of a special prosecutor.
According to The (Youngstown) Vindicator (bit.ly/PzzEhM), it was the first time in 19 years that a judge in Youngstown has moved a trial.
