BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Lawyers for a Vermont man facing a second death penalty trial in the 2000 death of a North Clarendon woman are asking a federal judge to move the trial to another location.

The attorneys for Donald Fell argue there has been too much publicity about the case to ensure him a fair trial.

Judge Geoffrey Crawford Wednesday refused to allow Fell's attorneys to keep secret their 119-page filing that included references to numerous news articles and a poll about the case commissioned by the attorneys.

The poll found that more than half of the people polled knew of the Fell case.

Fell is charged with killing 53-year-old Terry King after abducting her when she arrived for work. His 2005 conviction and death sentence were overturned due to juror misconduct.
