Judge continues hearing on video in Phoenix killings case

PHOENIX (AP) - A judge has continued arguments by defense lawyers who objected to the release of in-custody video of a former Phoenix bus driver charged in nine killings that terrified people on the city's west side.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge David Cunanan said Friday a hearing about video of Aaron Juan Saucedo in his jail cell would resume April 27.

He granted a request by defense attorney Susan Corey that her team be given five days to respond if the county sheriff's office receives further record requests for video of Saucedo.

The defense argues that the death penalty in the case should be taken off the table because releasing the video to news organizations violated their client's right to bodily privacy.

Saucedo has pleaded not guilty to charges including first-degree murder.
