The trial of David Bisard, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer accused of driving drunk and killing one motorcyclist and injuring two others, will be moved from Marion County to Allen County.

Marion Superior Judge Grant Hawkins announced the trial venue change Thursday. It will now be handled by Judge John Surbeck in Allen County. Hawkins decided in December that the officer’s trial should be moved from the Indianapolis media market because of publicity surrounding the accident.

Bisard drove his police cruiser into three motorcyclists stopped at an intersection on Aug. 6, 2010, killing Eric Wells and severely injuring Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly. Bisard is charged with drunken driving and reckless homicide.
