A defense attorney wants to move the case involving the killing of a 6-year-old girl out of town because of emotional media coverage.
Last September, David Levi Chavez, 21, was charged with an open count of murder in connection with the death of Jasmine Garcia, who had just graduated from kindergarten.
Garcia was sleeping in her mother’s bed at 304 Union St. late on June 15, when a shot ripped through an outside wall facing the street, killing her. Authorities say that Chavez was aiming for Garcia’s uncle when he fired at the house.
