Social media gag order requested

A defense attorney is asking a Laurens County judge to issue an order to silence people connected to a murder case from public talking or posting about it.

The victim’s mother has been posting to social media to remember her daughter. She dedicated a Facebook page to her and she is involved in rallies against domestic violence. The defense attorney of Michael Beaty Jr., accused of the homicide, alleges that his client cannot have a fair trial if the victim’s mother does not stop posting and speaking about the murder and asked the judge to ban related social media posts. The court decision is pending. More information at http://www.postandcourier…
