Peterson requests change of venue for trial

July 30, 2009 Joel Brodsky said he filed the change-of-venue paperwork Thursday in an attempt to move Peterson's murder trial to another location.

Peterson is charged in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He's pleaded not guilty.

Brodsky says the media attention to the trial is jeopardizing Peterson's right to a fair trial.
