MT prosecutor opposes attempt to rule out death

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

 BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- An eastern Montana prosecutor says he opposes attempts
to declare one of the suspects in the killing of a Sidney teacher ineligible for
 the death penalty.
   Richland County Attorney Mike Weber said Wednesday he also opposes a request
by defense attorneys to relocate the January trial of defendant Michal Keith
Spell. He declined to elaborate.
   Spell and co-defendant Lester Van Waters Jr., both of Colorado, are charged
in the 2012 killing of Sherry Arnold.
   Spell's attorneys have asked the court to rule out a potential death sentence
 because he is mentally disabled.
   They want the trial moved to Bozeman on the grounds that jurors in Richland County
 would be biased by the widespread news coverage the case has received and
because Arnold was so well known in the community
