Accused murder suspect requests trial be moved from Columbus

By Web Staff – email

An accused murderer has requested for his trial to be moved from Columbus.

Michael Registe, accused of the 2007 double homicide of two Hardaway High School grads, argues he can not get a fair trial in Muscogee County.

He also requested any evidence gained from what he calls the illegal seizure of his cell phone records be kept from a jury.

Authorities say registe fled the country after the murders.

He was listed on the FBI's ten most wanted, and was captured in the Caribbean in 2008.
