The man accused of killing a gas station clerk on Thanksgiving wants his trial moved.

21-year-old Victor Rivera filed a change of venue request this morning. This means the trial could be held in another county, or the jurors brought to Fort Wayne.

Rivera is accused of killing 25-year-old Jacob Walerko at the Mejier gas station on Lima Road. His trial has also been moved up to April.
