(Lancaster) -- An out-of-town jury has been picked to hear a potential death-penalty case against a man accused of killing a game warden in Adams County.
Christopher Lynn Johnson goes on trial in Adams County on September 24. He's charged with fatally shooting state wildlife officer David Grove in November 2010.
Some 16 Lancaster County residents will travel daily, about 50 miles to the Adams County courthouse in Gettysburg.
Officials say Grove was patrolling a dark stretch of rural road in Freedom Township when he confronted a poacher and was shot four times.
Johnson has pleaded not guilty. Adams County prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty if he's convicted of first-degree murder.
