Tifton - - A man charged with murder in the 2005 deaths of six Mexican men doesn't want his trial held in Tift County.

Investigators say Stacey Sims killed the men during home invasions and robberies at three trailers in Tift County.

Sims is charged with six counts of murder and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Sims' defense attorney, Clark Landrum, requested a change of venue, saying too heavy media coverage of the killings may sway jurors.

Authorities believe Sims may have been part of an armed-robbery gang that preyed on immigrant workers, who often carry large sums of cash because they lack documents that some banks require to open accounts.

Landrum says he doesn't know when a judge will hear his motion for a change of venue.
