PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. - Attorneys for a woman accused of killing two of her adopted daughters whose bodies were found in her freezer are asking a Calvert County judge to move her trial for the abuse of a third girl.

In a request filed Wednesday, attorneys asked that Renee Bowman's case be transferred to another court because of extensive pretrial publicity.

The motion says Bowman is unable to receive a fair trial in the county, given that her case has been featured prominently in local media and other factors.

Authorities found the two girls' bodies in September while investigating an abuse complaint involving Bowman's third daughter. Bowman faces attempted murder charges in the abuse of the surviving girl.

In Montgomery County, she faces murder and child abuse charges in the deaths of the two girls.
