Earnest Lee Hargon's court appointed attorney wants a change of venue, fearing pre-trial publicity will hurt his client.

Wesley Evans is asking media in Jackson and Yazoo County for copies of everything broadcast or written about Hargon.

Earnest Lee Hargon is charged with three counts of capital murder in the death of three family members. If convicted, Hargon faces the death penalty.

The trial starts December 6.
