Change Of Venue Request In Murder Trial

A man accused of killing an eastern Kentucky police chief was back in court this morning.

Jamie Barnett's lawyers presented another request to a judge today, this time asking to move the trial out of Powell County.

Police say Barnett shot Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy to death back in June.

The judge did not make a decision on the request today, but the issue will be addressed during a meeting set for January 23rd.

Barnett is currently undergoing a psychiatric exam.
