State District Judge John Roach Jr. has issued a gag order in the Terrance Black murder case.
Black is accused of killing Plano fitness instructor Susan Loper.
Channel 8’s Steve Stoler reports that Judge Roach has decided to wait on making a decision on a change of venue.
Stoler reports that Black’s attorneys argued the publicity surrounding the case would prejudice a local jury. Six witnesses, including five North Texas lawyers testified Black cannot get a fair trial in McKinney.
The judge decided to wait until jury selection before making a ruling.
