     EARLVILLE, Iowa (AP) - The trial of a man accused of using a corn rake to kill his wife has been moved from Delaware County to Dubuque County.
    The Telegraph Herald reports that the judge's order to move the first-degree murder trial of 43-year-old Todd Mullis was released Friday. Mullis, who remains in custody on a $5 million bond, had said he couldn't get a fair trial in Delaware County, where his wife "worked closely with law enforcement" as a nurse.
    Mullis has pleaded not guilty. Authorities say he fatally attacked 39-year-old Amy Mullis in November at her farm northwest of Earlville. Authorities initially believed she'd been fatally injured in a fall. An autopsy showed she died after receiving injuries that included multiple stab wounds to her back with a corn rake.
