PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The Allegheny County District Attorney is seeking a gag order in the case against a Wilkinsburg man charged in the murder of Pittsburgh Police Officer Calvin Hall.

The D.A. filing cites an interview defense attorney Carmen Robinson did on KDKA Radio August 30, the day suspect Christian Bey as arraigned.

The Post-Gazette reports the filing says Robinson made unsubstantiated claims about the case and argued against the death penalty.

It seeks a limit on any out of court statements by attorneys for both sides and potential witnesses among others.

Officer Hall was shot July 14 in Homewood and died three days later.

Judge Kevin Sasinosky will rule on the request. Kevin Sasinosky will rule on the request.
