Lawyers for the woman charged with killing the pregnant girlfriend of former Chicago Bear Shaun Gayle are asking a judge to change the venue for her trial.Marni Yang's attorneys claim that an episode of Dateline NBC which aired last Friday included interviews that could prejudice a jury. They are also asking a judge for a gag order.

Prosecutors say Yang shot and killed Rhoni Reuter in Deerfield back in 2007. Reuter was seven months pregnant. Authorities say Yang was jealous of Reuter and her pregnancy by Shaun Gayle.

The next court hearing is scheduled for September 14.
