The man accused of stabbing a police officer at the Flint airport wants to move his trial to federal court in Detroit.

Amor Ftouhi's attorney says the jury pool is larger there and a lot of people probably weren't exposed to news about the attack in 2017.

Federal prosecutors say Ftouhi has failed to show that publicity about the stabbing has tainted the jury pool in the Flint area.
