FIRST ON WITN: Attorney Wants Cesar Laurean Trial Moved

An attorney for a former Camp Lejeune Marine, accused of killing a pregnant Marine, wants his upcoming trial moved out of Onslow County.

Dick McNeil, attorney for Cesar Laurean, filed the motion today in Onslow County. He says publicity about the death of Maria Lauterbach and Laurean's arrest in Mexico would make it difficult for Laurean to get a fair trial in Jacksonville.

Laurean is charged with the murder of Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach, who authorities found burned and buried in Laurean's backyard in 2007.
