Idaho prosecutor wants cameras out of Bryan Kohberger courtroom

Lawyers on both sides of the Idaho student murders case have asked the court to restrict TV cameras in court as the unexplained slaughter of four undergrads continues to attract national attention.

Suspect Bryan Kohberger’s defense asked Latah County District Judge John Judge to bar cameras from the courtroom in late August, claiming that the media coverage violated a court “directive” and his constitutional rights.

In response, Latah County Prosecuting Attorney Bill Thompson raised his own concerns about the media presence during the proceedings and, at a minimum, he asked the judge to remove cameras during the testimony of “a number of young and vulnerable witnesses.”

WSU is less than 10 miles from the University of Idaho, where all four victims attended.

A hearing on the camera issue is scheduled for Wednesday.
