Twenty-year-old Martin Walker is charged with felony murder for the February death of 24-year-old Colin Byars.
Witnesses have told police that Byars and Walker had a confrontation outside Big Shotz Sports Bar Feb. 21 before Walker punched Byars in the face. Byars fell and hit his head.
Defense attorneys have also asked a judge to dismiss the case against Walker. His lawyers are expected to argue that witnesses said both men appeared ready to fight.
A hearing on the change of venue and dismissal motion is scheduled June 25.
