WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The new lawyer for a Purdue University student accused of killing a fellow student from Wisconsin wants his possible trial moved to another county in Indiana. Public defender Kirk Freeman was recently appointed to represent 23-year-old Cody Cousins, who's charged with murder in the January shooting-and-stabbing death of 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend.

Freeman told a judge it would be impossible to find a fair jury in the Lafayette area, where Purdue is the largest employer. Also, Freeman said jurors could be prejudiced, after his client admitted last week that he's being treated for schizophrenia. Freeman also asked that tax funds be used to provide a mental health assessment for Cousins.

Boldt was killed during an electrical engineering class at Purdue, while he was serving as a teaching assistant.
