Stating a concern that publicity surrounding the trial of four men charged with murdering Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor might jeopardize their right to a fair trial, a Miami-Dade circuit judge issued a gag order in the case Jan. 8. Attorneys, prosecutors, the police and Taylor’s family are all prohibited from speaking about the case or about statements previously made to police.

Taylor was killed during an attempted burglary in his South Florida home Nov. 26 by a gunshot wound to the groin. The parties all agreed to the judge’s gag order.
