DES MOINES (WHO) -
The trial for a man accused of killing two Des Moines area Police Officers is moved to Dubuque County, according to our affiliate WHO-TV.
Scott Greene faces murder charges in the deaths of Sgt. Tony Beminio and Officer Justin Martin.
The two were murdered in ambush-style killings in November 2016.
According to WHO, a Polk County judge ruled Tuesday Greene's trial will be moved and will begin in September.
Greene's attorneys believe pre-trial publicity would make it tough to find an impartial jury in Polk County.
