Georgia Man Wants Molesting Charges Dismissed

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Lawyers for a man charged with kidnapping, molesting and killing a 6-year-old girl say his charges should be dismissed because the grand jurors who indicted him were not diverse enough.

The lawyers tried to convince the Glynn County Superior Court Judge to dismiss the indictment by arguing Hispanics were underrepresented among potential grand jurors. They also want the trial moved to another county.

David Edenfield, his wife, Peggy Edenfield and their adult son, George Edenfield, are accused of kidnapping, molesting and strangling the Hispanic girl in 2007 in their trailer at a mobile home park.
