DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The trial for a man accused of shooting and wounding a Cook County prosecutor and witness this month will be heard by a Grand Rapids judge.

The shooting occurred Dec. 15 in the Cook County courthouse, which is in the 6th Judicial District. But to prevent a conflict of interest, the case will be heard by Judge Jon Maturi of the 9th Judicial District.
