Iowa Day Care Provider Seeks Trial Venue Change

Iowa Day Care Provider Seeks Trial Venue Change
Rochelle Sapp

ORANGE CITY, IA -

A northwest Iowa day care provider charged with murder in the death of a 3-year-old girl is seeking a change of venue for her upcoming trial.

An attorney for 34-year-old Rochelle Sapp says publicity surrounding the case would make it hard for the woman to receive a fair trial in Sioux County.

Sapp has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and child endangerment in connection to the death of Autumn Elgersma last year. An autopsy ruled that the girl died of blunt force head injury.

Sapp's attorney, Edward Bjornstad, filed the motion Monday. No trial date has been set.
