    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's attorney general is opposing a request from the woman who threw blood and ink on a Confederate statue on a university campus that the chancellor and police chief testify at her trial.

    The News & Observer of Raleigh reports protester Maya Little wants Chancellor Carol Folt and police Chief Jeff McCracken of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to testify at her trial, which is scheduled to start Monday.

    Little faces a misdemeanor charge of defacing a public statue or monument after she threw the mixture of blood and ink on the Confederate statue known as Silent Sam on April 30.

    Attorney General Josh Stein is asking a judge to reject the request for testimony from Folt and McCracken, who were subpoenaed Tuesday.
