Throughout the month of April, the defense has been arguing to move the trial out of Madison County to avoid a biased jury.

 The prosecution wants Raleigh Sizemore and Gregory Ratliff to face a local jury. 

 The defense is also attempting to have the two tried separately.

 Officer Ellis was killed back in November of 2015 at an apartment building while investigating a robbery. 

 Sizemore’s charges include murder of a police officer and illegal possession of a handgun by a convicted felon. Ratliff is facing complicity to murder a police officer charges. 

 The hearing is scheduled for 9:30 am in Madison County. If the judge decides on a location, the case will likely go to trial in June.
