Attorney’s office objects to expanded media coverage of trial
Motion blocks effort to collect audio recordings, take photographs during attempted murder trial
Assistant Jasper County Attorney Scott Nicholson filed a motion Tuesday in District Court objecting to a Daily News request for expanded media coverage in next week’s attempted murder trial of a Newton woman.
Nicholson’s motion will be the subject of one of two hearings to be held Monday. It included a brief statement by Eric James, who will be a prosecution witness in the attempted murder trial of Jane Marie Shine, 53, who is accused of shooting James multiple times at the home he shared with Shine’s daughter in July of last year.
In his statement, James objected to having his photograph appear “on the front page” of the Daily News. He said expanded media coverage would “complicate” the trial.
