Lohse seeks to exclude YouTube video from trial evidence

Wade Lohse is looking to have a YouTube video he posted to the web during his run from authorities excluded from his trial.

In a motion filed Tuesday, Lohse's attorney, Thomas Alonzo, says that the video is "highly prejudicial" evidence that "will prohibit (Lohse) from receiving a fair trial." Alonzo also notes that a pending change of venue motion for this case is based on the publicity the video received in local media after it was posted online.

Lohse is accused of driving drunk and killing Cacie Barra McGrew in June 2012. He fled from a courtroom on March 25 just before his trial was to begin.

Lohse's trial will begin Monday.
