Jorge Barahona's Palm Beach Trial Moving to Miami-Dade

The Palm Beach County trial of a South Florida man accused of trying to kill his adoptive son after allegedly killing his sister is moving to Miami-Dade.

Jorge Barahona, 48, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse in Palm Beach in the February 2011 incident.

A judge approved the moving of the trial on Monday.

He already faces a potential death penalty in Miami-Dade if he's found guilty in the death of daughter Nubia Barahona.

Nubia Barahona's decomposing body was found in her father's pesticide truck alongside Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County. Her brother was found just feet away, suffering severe chemical burns.

Barahona's wife Carmen also faces a murder charge in Miami-Dade. Jorge Barahona's next court date is scheduled for August.
