No gag order in cop killing trial

Gag order denied in police slayings:

Superior Court Judge Robert Johnston has denied the request from the defense to instill a gag order on the trial of Demeatrius Montgomery. Montgomery is accused of the shooting deaths of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officers Jeff Shelton and Sean Clark.

However, Judge Montgomery said that the defense could renew their request if they feel the media is hurting Montgomery’s right to a fair trial.

I for one hope the media does not step out of line. I don’t want there to be any complications with this trial, whether or not Montgomery is convicted or not.
