Patrick Watkins wants his upcoming murder trial moved out of Clark County.
His wife and co-defendant Joy Watkins wouldn't mind either.
Joy Watkins' attorney filed documents Monday in Clark Circuit Court indicating they have no objections to moving the case elsewhere because of pre-trial publicity.
The Watkinses are charged with murder for the March 2007 death of Patrick's daughter, Michaela.
In the notice, her attorney, Tim Despotes, wrote that he believed "it will be highly unlikely to find potential jurors in Clark County who have not been exposed repeatedly to the fact that an adolescent girl child Michaela Watkins died and that her father and stepmother are being held criminally liable for the same."
The Watkinses' murder trial is scheduled to begin Monday in Winchester for the March 11, 2007 death Michaela Watkins. Clark Circuit Judge William T. Jennings is scheduled to hear both motions Thursday.
