Whenever the trial of an indictment has been transferred from the county in which
the indictment was found to some other county, the cost and expense of such trial
shall be a charge upon the county in which the indictment was found. Whenever under the order of any court of competent jurisdiction, the pleadings and
issue in any prosecution for any crime or misdemeanor, for which no indictment has
been found, shall have been removed to any other county in this state for trial therein,
in consequence of any inability to obtain an unprejudiced or impartial jury in the
county in which the venue was originally laid, the expenses of the trial of said prosecution
shall be a charge upon the county from which the same was transferred. The cost and expense of trial of any prosecution, as shown by the certificate of
the presiding judge or justice, shall be paid by the county from which the transfer
of trial was made to the county treasurer of the county in which the trial was had.
