SIOUX CITY | A judge will hear arguments next week about moving a Sioux City man's robbery trial. The man's first trial ended in a mistrial Wednesday.

Levon Dean, 24, is charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, second-degree theft and assault while participating in a felony in connection with the April 24 armed robbery of a man in the 4300 block of Polk Street.

In declaring a mistrial during jury selection, Woodbury County District Court Judge Jeffrey Neary cited publicity and media coverage surrounding Dean, 24, and his brother, Jamal Dean.

On Thursday, Jamal Dean admitted to shooting a Sioux City police officer in the head on April 29. He pleaded guilty to attempted murder.

Levon Dean was not involved in the shooting. His change of venue hearing is set for Tuesday in District Court in Sioux City.
