Michael Wood change of venue request
(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.
