LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - A judge won't relocate the trial of a man charged with murder in a deputy's death during a high-speed police chase.

An assistant prosecutor said Tuesday that Judge James Flannery in Lebanon denied the defense request.

Marcus Isreal's attorney had argued that his black client is accused of killing a white deputy and cannot get a fair trial in predominantly white Warren County. Attorney Clyde Bennett also cited extensive media coverage.

Bennett said Tuesday that it would be a "tough, difficult task" but he would do what he could to make sure Isreal gets a fair trial in the county.

Isreal, of Middletown, pleaded not guilty to charges in Sgt. Brian Dulle's death.

Authorities say Dulle was placing stop sticks to halt a stolen car driven by Isreal when it struck him.
