With no jury selected yet, the district attorney of Winn Parish has filed paperwork to change the venue of the Scott Nugent trial.
Jury selection is still going on in the trial of a former Winnfield police officer, who is accused of killing a man with a stun gun in January of 2008.
Officials say the judge hasnít ruled whether the case will be tried somewhere else, although jurors still havenít been picked out after a week.
The sheriff of Winn Parish says the district attorney has never asked for a change of venue as far as he can remember.
Nugent is accused of arrested Barron Pikes, and Tasering him several times with a stun gun after Pikes was already in handcuffs.
The coroner of Winn Parish ruled that Pikes died of cardiac arrest, caused by the stun gun shocks.
Nugent is charged with manslaughter and malfeasance in office and faces up to 45 years in prison.
