Gag-Order set in Machete-Killings Case

A Fort Smith attorney is looking to put a gag order on a highly publicized, upcoming murder trial. Aaron Kinsey is accused of killing two men with a machete near downtown Fort Smith on June 26th. It is indicated by court documents that Kinsey's attorney, Teri Chambers, wants all parties involved to not say anything to anyone outside the case. According to Prosecuting Attorney, Daniel Shue, a gag order is a common expression for what is called in the law, a prior restraint. Chambers wrote in her documents that this case has been the subject of widespread media coverage. Families involved in the case said they want a fair trial.
