Defense seeks to move Ohio school shooting trial

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — Attorneys for a teenager charged in the school shooting deaths of three students are renewing their effort to move the trial out of a grief-stricken community in northeast Ohio.

Attorneys for 18-year-old T.J. Lane asked the trial judge in Geauga County located east of Cleveland for permission to make their case in a sealed document.

The defense didn’t elaborate in the motion filed late Monday. A member of the defense team, Ian Friedman, confirmed a supplemental request to move the trial had been filed but declined comment today.
