Attorneys Want Gag Order In Machete Slayings Case
A Sebastian County Circuit Court judge is expected to rule next week on a request for a gag order and to seal investigative records in the case of a man charged with using a machete to kill two Fort Smith men.
The Southwest Times Record reported Wednesday that a hearing is
scheduled for Tuesday.
Gregory Aaron Kinsey is charged with two counts of capital murder in the June 26 deaths of Brandon Prince and Nathan Young. Authorities say the victims were outside a house when Kinsey walked by and exchanged words with them. Witnesses said the men confronted Kinsey, who attacked them with the machete.
Kinsey has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecuting Attorney Dan Shue says the media should be allowed to address the request to seal the investigative file.
