JUNEAU, Alaska—A state court judge in Ketchikan has moved the trial of a woman accused of conspiring to kill her mother in 2004.
District Attorney Stephen West says Judge William Carey ordered the trial moved to Anchorage after determining it would be difficult to seat an impartial jury.
The defense sought the change of venue.
Waterman was 16 when prosecutors say she conspired to kill her mother near the southeast Alaska community of Craig. The jury in Waterman's first trial deadlocked.
Two men pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the case and are in prison.
West says attorneys expect to learn Friday whether jury selection will begin Tuesday or Wednesday.
