SCRANTON -- Three teens charged with homicide for the death of a Scranton police officer will be tried in Lackawanna County.

A judge denied Nasiir Jones, Tanner Curtis, and Isiah Edwards a change of venue request.

Officer John Wilding chased the trio after a suspected armed robbery attempt two summers ago. Wilding fell 15 feet during the chase and died from his injuries.

Prosecutors believe the officer died as a result of the teens' alleged crime.

There's no word when the teens will stand trial in Lackawanna County.
