(INDIANAPOLIS) - An Indiana Supreme Court ruling could get a death-penalty trial started against a man accused of strangling a 12-year-old girl.
Forty-one-year-old Jeffrey Voss is accused of abducting and killing Christina Tedder on Christmas Eve, 2004. The girl's body was found six days later, frozen in a creek in Hancock County.
The case had stalled for 20 months after Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi claimed a judge had a bias against the death penalty. Defense attorneys argued that Brizzi was simply shopping for a more favorable judge to handle the case.
