TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A judge has decided he'll have go outside of Hillsborough County to find the jury for Dontae Morris' murder trial.

Judge William Fuente says jury selection will begin March 4 in Orange County for the murder of 42-year-old Rodney Jones. He was killed in 2010 as he left the Cotton Club in Tampa.

A previous jury pool in Hillsborough County was dismissed in July.

Morris is widely known as the man suspected of killing Tampa police officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab. He has yet to be tried for those deaths.

In all, Morris is accused of killing five people.
