Play associated audio

A teenager charged in a double homicide in Prince William County, Virginia could have his trial moved. 18-year-old Xavier Pinckney's trial is scheduled to begin September 28th. But his attorneys say finding an impartial jury in Prince William County would be difficult because of inflammatory news coverage of the case. Pinckney is accused of shooting 39-year-old Jean Smith and her 19-year-old son, James, during a burglary at their Dale City home. Pinckney faces charges ranging from robbery to capital murder to murder in the first degree.
