Scheer gets trial moved

March 17, 2003

Albany-- A change of venue is granted in a high profile Albany murder trial.

Monday, Judge Steve Goss granted the request to move the trial of Bill Scheer.

Scheer is the Monroe High School math teacher charged with killing his elderly father 12 years ago at their home in the Lake Park neighborhood. Scheer's lawyers argued that pre-trial publicity would prevent a fair trial in Dougherty County.

No word yet on whether the trial will be moved or whether a jury will be chosen from another county and brought here to Albany to hear the case.
