CLEVELAND – Attorneys for five Cleveland police supervisors involved in a deadly 2012 police chase argued against moving the case to East Cleveland.

The case is currently in Cuyahoga County.

Prosecutors want the case dismissed in Cuyahoga County so the trial will be held in East Cleveland.

The chase in 2012 began in downtown Cleveland but ended in East Cleveland with police shooting Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams 137 times.

The defense attorneys for the supervisors says the move is unjust and is only to have a more favorable jury in East Cleveland.

Judge John O’Donnell is expected to issue a decision by Friday.

If the move is denied a a jury trail is set to begin in Cuyahoga County on Monday.
