A Chinese woman charged in what federal prosecutors say was a conspiracy to steal trade secrets from U.S. seed corn companies is seeking to separate her case from her brother's and she wants a trial held as quickly as possible.

The attorney for Mo Yun filed documents in federal court in Des Moines on Thursday

Mo wants a separate trial from her brother, Mo Hailong, because his trial will be more complex and will take longer. Mo Yun wants her trial as soon at Dec. 1 so she can prove her innocence and get back to her children and family in China.

Mo is one of seven people connected to Chinese agriculture biotechnology company DBN Group who prosecutors say stole patented seed corn to try to reproduce its traits.
