Judge considers gag order for Sweat case

OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Okla. - On Tuesday, a judge will consider the defense attorney's request for a gag order in the case of Kevin Sweat.

Sweat is charged with murdering his fiancee, Ashley Taylor, in 2011.

Now, he's also accused of the 2008 homicides of Taylor Paschal-Placker and Skyla Whitaker in Weleetka.

Sweat's attorneys say they're asking for a gag order because pretrial publicity has been damaging to the case.

If approved, law enforcement, the DA's office and jailers would not be able to discuss publicly anything related to the case.
