A 17-year-old accused of killing a Bell County sheriff's deputy made a court appearance on Wednesday afternoon.
Police say David Poppiti crashed his car into Deputy Sean Pursifull's cruiser back in January during a chase. The crash killed Pursifull and his K-9 partner, King.
Poppiti is charged with murder as an adult.
His lawyer asked a judge on Wednesday for a change of venue, arguing that because of pre-trial publicity, Poppiti couldn't get a fair trail.
The judge has not yet ruled on that request.
