The judge had ordered that camera shots not be focused exclusively on Kohberger, or on any paper or notes on the defense table, however, the defense attorneys said that's not being followed.

They said photos, paired with what it called "blatantly sensationalistic and prejudicial headlines and content," can gradually poison the potential jury pool before the trial starts.
