The man who confessed to killing a Wichita abortion provider doesn’t believe he can get a fair trial in Sedgwick County.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Scott Roeder‘s public defenders want his trial moved, citing news reports in the Eagle and a reported comment made by District Attorney Nola Foulston that Roeder’s past could lead reasonable people to believe that he had been engaged in “alleged acts of American terrorism.” Whatever would lead her to believe that?

Roeder has a busy calendar leading up to his January 11 trial.

His next hearing is set for December 9. A judge is scheduled to consider the request to move the trial on December 22.
