Update — 2014-04-03 —A man convicted of killing a Monongalia County sheriff’s deputy, Sgt. Todd May, in Pennsylvania has requested to have his West Virginia charges tried somewhere other than Monongalia County.
Jerod Green’s attorney filed motions to change the venue and asked the court to rescues itself from the case, citing a belief that the sheriff’s department and court system in the county have a very close relationship.
