Burned Baby Suspect Wants Trial Moved

She's accused of burning her 18 month old baby, in an oven, and now she wants her trial moved.

Attorneys for Melissa Wright have asked the court to move her trial, saying media coverage of the case will prevent finding an impartial jury. Wright says voices in her head told her to put her daughter in an estimated 600 degree oven. A state psychiatrist says Wright is mentally competent to stand trial. Her attorney says a private exam will show otherwise.
