A serial killer's trial is being considered as one of the first to have cameras in the courtroom but Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan doesn't like the idea. She's asking a Whiteside County judge to keep the cameras out because they may interfere with Nicholas Sheley's right to a fair trial. Whiteside County State's Attorney Gary Spencer also wants to ban the cameras.
Sheley is accused of going on a multi-state killing spree in 2008, killing eight people. Last September, Sheley was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in Know County. On top of that he'll serve concurrent sentences of 30 years in prison for the Class-X felony of aggravated vehicular hjacking and another seven years for possession of a stolen vehicle. He was arrested in Granite City, and also faces two murder charges in Missouri.
