Prosecutors want one trial for the man accused of kidnapping, imprisoning and raping a northern New Hampshire girl over nine months.
Nathaniel Kibby was charged in December with more than 200 counts in Coos County and five counts in Carroll County.
Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Kibby kidnapped the 14-year-old on her way home from school in Conway on Oct. 9, 2013. They say he kept her in his Gorham home and in a storage unit until July 2014 when she returned home. He was arrested a week later.
In a motion filed this week, the state asks that Kibby be tried on all charges in one county and by one judge.
Kibby could spend life in prison if he's convicted.
His lawyer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
