Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to face two separate trials

MCKINNEY, Tex. (AP) - The judge overseeing the felony securities fraud charges against Texas' Republican attorney general says he'll attempt to seat a jury without changing where the case will be tried.

Special prosecutors have asked that the proceedings be moved from Ken Paxton's home county.

But during a hearing Thursday, Judge George Gallagher said he planned to "at least try to choose a jury here."

Prosecutors also said that they'd like to hold separate trials, one on registration charges and a longer fraud case.
