MOSCOW, Dec 6, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Two Chechens accused of killing the editor of the Russian edition of Forbes Tuesday demanded a jury trial for the crime.

Paul Klebnikov was shot to death outside the magazine's offices July 9, 2004. The killing allegedly was ordered by Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev, a former deputy prime minister in Chechnya's separatist government, who was the subject of a book written by Klebnikov.

The Russian Information Agency Novosti reports the defendants' lawyer, Lema Umarov, said the two accused defendants want a jury trial.
