Venue Change Sought in Case of Woman’s 1975 Death

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) – An Indiana man who spent more than 25 years in prison for the death of his second wife is seeking a new location for his trial on charges he killed his first wife in 1975.

The defense attorney for 62-year-old Earl Leslie Taylor argues publicity about Taylor's arrest in July has made it difficult to pick an impartial jury in Vigo County.

Taylor faces a murder charge for the Kathy Taylor's death at a Terre Haute home. The Tribune-Star reports the 23-year-old appeared to have been electrocuted after a clock radio fell into a bathtub, but an autopsy ruled her death undetermined. 

Taylor's attorney points to an episode of the TNT program “Cold Justice'' as inflammatory against him.
