Marinello's attorneys claim fair trial not possible

Attorneys for former New Orleans broadcaster Vince Marinello argue their client cannot get a fair trial in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.

During a brief hearing earlier today, state district judge Conn Regan set March 24 for arguments on the motion for a change of venue. Defense attorneys claim in court papers that news media coverage of Marinello's case has biased potential jurors in the case.

Marinello is accused in the 2006 shooting death of his estranged wife, Mary Elizabeth Marinello, who was a native of Purvis.
