JONES COUNTY, Miss. - A Jones County man who's court case ended up as mistrial a few weeks ago is now requesting for a change of venue.

A judge granted Justin  Blakeney's request Tuesday.

The District Attorney's office has requested that a new county is chosen right away so that the trial can move forward.

Blakeney is charged with the 2009 death of his ex-girlfriend's daughter 2-year-old Victoria Viner.
