Fourth bid denied to relocate Adenhart trial

The driver accused of killing Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and his two friends in a drunken driving accident lost his fourth bid Monday to have the trial moved out of Orange County.

The attorney for Andrew Gallo, 23, argued the publicity surrounding the case has tainted the jury pool.

Jury selection is already under way.

Authorities said Gallo had a blood-alcohol level almost three times the legal limit when he ran a red light and crashed into the car carrying the three victims.

Gallo is charged with three counts of second-degree murder.

He has pleaded not guilty.
