Attorneys Want Raleigh Trial Moved

Posted December 14, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— 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.
