STORY COUNTY, Iowa (KCRG) -- Collin Richards is asking a judge to have his trial moved out of Story County on Monday.
Richards faces a first degree murder charge in the death of Celia Barquin Arozamena on September 17. She had been playing a round of golf at an Ames golf course near the Iowa State Campus. Barquin Arozamena was a stand-out golfer for the ISU golf team.
Prosecutors are fighting to keep the trial in Story County. They say Richards hasn't shown coverage of the crime was prejudicial. A judge hasn't said if he or she will rule on it.
Richards' trial is set to begin in September.
