FILLMORE -- Attorneys for a man charged with capital murder in the shooting death of a Utah sheriff's deputy are asking a judge to move the case out of Fillmore.
In 4th District Court papers filed this week, attorneys for Roberto Miramontes Roman say he can't get a fair trial in the small, central Utah town because the victim was so well-known. Attorneys say publicity of the case has also been widespread.
Millard County Sheriff's Deputy Josie Greathouse Fox was shot and killed Jan. 5, 2010 during a traffic stop near Delta.
Roman has pleaded not guilty to charges of capital murder, evidence tampering and possession of dangerous weapon.
It was not clear Friday when Judge Donald P. Eyre might rule on the issue.
