Judge denies request for police videos to be removed from YouTube
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Justice of the Peace Eric Goodman has ruled that Las Vegas police do not have to remove the videos related to suspected serial killer Nathan Burkett from the video-sharing website YouTube.
Deputy Special Public Defender Alzora Jackson claims that her client is being "vilified" in the videos and that it will not be possible for him to receive a fair trial because of the videos from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Jackson filed a motion with the court requesting removal of the videos.
LVMPD voluntarily removed one of the videos yesterday. However, there is still a video of a press conference about the case online.
Burkett, 65, is charged with sexually assaulting and killing two women in 1978 and 1994.
A preliminary hearing has been set for 9 a.m. Oct. 5.
