Change of Venue?
(2007-11-13)
(WOUB) - Mahony is accused of making racial slurs and physical threats against two African-American women students at Ohio University's main library last May.

Last week, a jury couldn't reach a verdict in the case, which means it will be re-tried.

Prosecutor Lisa Eliason says she requested the change of venue during a pre-trial hearing Tuesday because of all the publicity Mahony's last trial received.

The judge denied the change of venue request.

Mahony's next trial is set for December 13th.
