The trial of Daniel E. Turner, arrested on charges of murder in the March slaying of a 21-year-old Aberdeen Proving Grounds police clerk, has been moved to Baltimore County.
Turner of Aberdeen is charged with first-degree murder for the stabbing death of Spec. 4 Bonnie S. Joseph. Turner also is charged with kidnapping, attempted rape, robbery, theft, battery and weapon charges.
Turner, 32, was to go on trial in Harford Circuit Court on Jan. 23.
The trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court tentatively is set to begin on Feb. 4.
Harford State's Attorney's Joseph I. Cassilly is seeking the death penalty if Turner is convicted.
Turner's court-appointed lawyers filed a change of venue request on Nov.
16. Because the death penalty is being sought, change of venue requests are granted automatically.
