(FRANKLIN) - The trial for a man accused of raping a woman in her Greenwood home will stay in Johnson County, but jurors will come from Monroe County.

A judge has decided to bring in jurors from Monroe County for the trial scheduled for Feb. 25. Bringing in jurors from Monroe County will likely increase the cost of the trial, as jurors will have to be paid for travel.

Lawyers worried media coverage could compromise the trial because it discussed the suspect's criminal past - information that isn't admissible in court.

Shawn Corbally, 34, is charged with four counts of rape, five counts of criminal deviate sexual conduct, two counts of criminal confinement, and one count each of burglary, intimidation, attempted residential entry and failure to register as a sex offender.

Corbally is accused of raping a woman at knifepoint in the Ashmore Trace Apartments.
