Can a murder defendant get a fair trial if grieving relatives sit in court wearing buttons bearing the picture of their slain loved one?
That question will be argued today in the US Supreme Court.
A federal appeals court threw out Mathew Musladin's murder conviction because relatives of shooting victim Tom Studer wore the buttons with his photo to court. Studer was engaged to Musladin's estranged wife at the time of his death.
Musladin argued self-defense. The appeals court said the buttons essentially interfered with Musladin's right to a fair trial.
