One of the teens accused of killing David Grunwald is hoping to have the trial moved out of the Valley.

David Grunwald

Erick Almandinger's attorney has a filed a motion requesting a change of venue, however, the request does not offer an alternative location.

Pre-trial coverage is cited as one reasons why Almandinger would likely not receive a fair trial if it's held in Palmer.

The Palmer District Attorney argues that any Alaskan with a computer or smartphone could read about the case.

A ruling on this motion is expected later this month.
