Attorneys for Casey White have requested that his trial be moved from Lauderdale County, as it would violate his rights to a fair trial by an impartial jury.

White’s attorneys filed a motion to change venue Monday for the felony murder charge stemming from the death of former Lauderdale County jail employee Vicky White.

The motion cites local and national media coverage and social media discussion and speculation as reasons why a trial in Lauderdale County wouldn’t be fair or impartial.

On top of the national coverage, Casey White’s case has garnered quite a bit of discussion on social media.

The motion states that discussion on social media and in groups have “severely prejudiced” the defendant.

Casey White’s felony murder trial is currently set for July 12 in Lauderdale County.
