Murder suspect seeking change of venue

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (KWWL) -- Attorneys for a Coralville woman have filed a motion seeking a change of venue for her trial in connection with the murder of a son and the wounding of another.

Michelle Kehoe is charged with murder and attempted murder in the stabbing death of Seth Kehoe and the wounding of Sean Kehoe.

Buchanan County Attorney Allan Vanderhart says Michelle Kehoe's attorney filed a motion last week to either move the trial to another county or draw a jury from another county due to the pretrial publicity. A hearing on pending motions is scheduled for Aug. 26.

Prosecutors allege that on Oct. 26, Kehoe drove her sons to a pond near Littleton and bound them with duct tape before cutting their throats. Sean Kehoe and the body of Seth Kehoe were found the next day.
