SAN SABA -- An attorney for a man on trial accused of plotting to have his stepmother killed now wants the trial moved.

Rudy Taylor who is representing 59-year-old Bruce Harkey is seeking a new venue pending Harkey's trial.

Taylor says it is impossible to find an unbiased jury in a town of about 3,000.

Harkey is accused of hiring someone to have his stepmother, Bonnie Harkey, killed so he could gain her fortune.

On March 26 police found Bonnie's body buried near San Saba after her caretaker was found dead a day earlier at Bonnie's home.
