The trial for a man accused of killing a deputy sheriff in southeastern South Dakota has been set for Aug. 23, but attorneys must wait to learn whether the case will be moved out of Turner County.
Defense lawyers for Ethan Johns told Circuit Judge Steven Jensen on Thursday that it will be difficult to seat an impartial jury in the county seat of Parker. They asked that the trial be moved 30 miles away to Sioux Falls, or that a survey be done if it stays in Turner County to determine whether potential jurors have formed an opinion about the case.
