LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

A Warren County judge has denied a change of venue for the man accused of fatally hitting a Warren County Sheriff's deputy with his car.

Judge James Flannery has denied a change of venue for Marcus Isreal. Investigators say Marcus Isreal hit and killed Sgt. Brian Dulle as the deputy was laying down stop sticks during a chase on May 10.

Isreal is charged with one count each of murder, involuntary manslaughter, aggravated vehicular homicide, receiving stolen property and failure to comply. He also was indicted on two counts each of felonious assault and weapons violation charges.

Isreal's attorney had filed for a change of venue in June, saying his client would not be able to get a fair and impartial jury in Warren County because he is African American.

Warren County Prosecutors responded with a release Tuesday saying, "The Warren County Prosecutor's Office believes the Court came to the correct legal conclusion in denying the Defendant's Motion for a Change of Venue.  We look forward to the opportunity to try this case before a Warren County jury and to achieve justice for the Dulle family and for law enforcement throughout Warren County."

Isreal is being held with a $2 million bond. His trial date is set for October 17th.
