Change of Venue Sought in Loud Music Killing

A man accused of killing a teenager in Florida during an argument over loud music is scheduled to be back in court as his attorneys argue that a new trial should be held outside of Jacksonville.
Attorneys for Michael Dunn will try to convince a judge Thursday that media coverage of his earlier trial, which ended deadlocked on a first-degree murder charge, has tainted the local jury pool.
The 47-year-old Dunn was convicted of three counts of second-degree attempted murder for shooting into a carload of teenagers during a dispute over their loud music, killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia.
But the jury failed to reach a verdict on the first-degree murder charge stemming from Davis' death.
The retrial is scheduled to begin Sept. 22.
