A Dane County Circuit Court judge will not allow cameras in the courtroom during a homicide trail starting Monday. 

Several news organizations in Madison, along with WBA, FOIC, and RTDNA, joined in opposing a motion from the prosecution and defense that forbids livestreaming or rebroadcasting of court proceedings. The motion for a hearing on the issue was denied. 

An order issued Thursday allows the media to access court proceedings via a media courtroom to report on the trial. But no audio or video equipment is allowed in the courtroom or media room.
