OPELIKA, AL -

Prosecutors are asking a judge to find a new location for the trial of a University of Alabama fan charged with poisoning Auburn University's oak trees at Toomer's Corner.

Lee County District Attorney Robert Treese made the request in a document made public Tuesday in the case of Harvey Updyke.

The prosecutor asked the judge Monday to find a new site for the trial, now set for April 8.

The state dropped its opposition to Updyke's request to move the trial away from Opelika.

The defense argues the trial needs to be held elsewhere because of extensive media coverage in the Auburn area.

Lee County District Judge Jacob A. Walker III is set to meet with attorneys in the case during a status conference on Friday.
