EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A man charged with burglary resulting in bodily injury, criminal confinement and theft in a home invasion that left him seriously injured is asking for his trial to be moved because of extensive pretrial media coverage.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports attorney Glenn Grampp filed the motion Wednesday in Vanderburgh Circuit Court on behalf of 23-year-old Jeton Hall. The case has received a lot of attention because the victim of the home invasion, Evansville businessman Ira Beumer, is charged with murder because he is accused of ramming his truck into a car full of men suspected of robbing his house, killing one of them and injuring Hall.
Judge David Kiely has approved delaying the trial until Dec. 9.
