Camera ruling due for Nichols trial

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Attorneys on both sides in the state trial of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols say they don't want cameras in the courtroom.

Associate District Judge Robert M- Murphy Junior will rule today whether Nichols preliminary hearing in the bombing case will be televised.

Court T-V is seeking permission to have a camera at the preliminary hearing.

Court T-V is a cable network that has broadcast more than 700 trials from 37 states.

Judges must ban cameras in Oklahoma if a criminal defendant objects. The only exception is the verdict.

Court T-V argues the Oklahoma restrictions amount to an unconstitutional impingement of the rights of the press.

Regardless of what Murphy decides, an appeal is expected.
