Attorneys Want Raleigh Trial Moved
Posted December 14, 1997
RALEIGH — Defense lawyers for the man accused of killing a Raleigh police officer say their client can't get a fair trial here.
Investigators say Kawame Mays shot and killed Detective Paul Hale, back in July.
Lawyers for Mays are scheduled to go before a judge Monday to ask for a change of venue.
They say media coverage at the time of the Hale's death will bias a local jury.
