Jobe attorneys file for change of venue

An update just into our newsroom on the trial of the Toledo teen accused of killing a Toledo police detective.

Robert Jobe's attorneys have filed a motion to move Jobe's trial out of Lucas County. The motion comes less than two weeks before jury selection is scheduled to begin.

They say there has been too much pre-trial publicity on the case, and that it jeapordizes their client's chance for a fair trial.

If convicted, Jobe could be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole for the February shooting death of detective Keith Dressel.
