FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) — A trial for a 17-year-old teen charged with murder in the death of a southeast Iowa high school Spanish teacher will be moved to Davenport, a judge ordered Tuesday.

The judge ordered that the trial for Jeremy Everett Goodale be moved about 80 miles (128 kilometers) from Fairfield to Davenport, a larger city of 100,000 people on the Mississippi River.

The move comes about a month after the trial for another teen charged with murder, Willard Miller, was moved about 200 miles (322 kilometers) west to Council Bluffs.

The teens are accused of first-degree murder in the beating death of 66-year-old Nohema Graber, who taught Spanish at Fairfield High School. Her body was found in a park Nov. 3, hidden under a tarp, wheelbarrow and railroad ties. She had been beaten to death with a baseball bat.
