Eddie Salazar's trial is scheduled to begin in two weeks

Attorney's for a Jasper County man charged with murdering his infant son are asking that his trial be moved to another county.

Prosecutors say Eddie Salazar Sr. threw his eight-month old son, Eddie Salazar Jr., into the Spring River in February of 2010 and then lied to authorities when he said masked intruders kidnapped the boy.

Salazar's trial is scheduled to begin on March 12th in Jasper County.

Judge Gayle Crane will rule on the motion March 5th.

UPDATE 03-05-12:

The motion for a change of venue was overruled.  The trial will begin on Monday in Jasper County.
