Man accused of killing 4 wants change of venue for trial

He’s been accused of killing three Girl Scouts and a mother last November, Now, he wants his trial moved out of Chippewa County. The change of venue motion has been requested by the attorney for Colton Treu, and it will be held Friday. The prosecution says the trial shouldn’t move, but a jury made up of members from outside the county could be selected to ensure impartiality.  Treu is accused of huffing chemicals before he killed nine-year-old Jayna Kelley, 10-year-old Autumn Helgeson and 10-year-old Haylee Hickle, plus Haylee’s mother Sara Jo Schneider.
