(KTVI) – The trial of Craig Michael Wood could be moved to a location, if wood’s attorney gets his way. The attorney argued in a motion Monday, that media coverage has made Greene County  residents biased against his client.  Wood is accused of raping and killing fourth-grader Hailey Owens in February.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.  The prosecuting attorney reportedly asked that the court require Wood to submit a handwriting sample.  Prosecutors are trying to prove that Wood wrote pornographic stories found in his home after Hailey’s body was found.

    He will be just as guilty in another County Court House. Media coverage on this tragedy was closely viewed State wide and beyond.

    I am completely disgusted by people like this. I think that anyone who can do such aweful things to innocent young children should be tied to a pole and be eaten alive by pigs!! Maybe then they will endure a small amount of the pain and fear that those precious children went through!!!
