PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) - Prosecutors say the trials of two men accused of fatally stabbing a Baltimore stylist have been moved after new evidence indicates the crime took place in a different county.

Somerset County deputy state's attorney Wess Garner tells the Salisbury Daily Times on Wednesday that the trials of the men accused of killing 22-year-old Damon Jennings will take place in Baltimore County.

Jennings' body was found on Oct. 15 on in a ditch along a rural road in Eden. Twenty-year-old Kevin Nixon and 23-year-old Elijah Carroll were charged with murder in Jennings' death.

Garner says new evidence recently surfaced, and police believe Jennings was fatally stabbed in Baltimore County and his body was driven more than 100 miles to Somerset County.
