DENVER (CNN) -- The judge in the Oklahoma City bombing case heard arguments Thursday about who should be allowed to view a closed-circuit television broadcast of the trials -- victims, family members or the media. Judge Richard Matsch said he would issue a written ruling later.
Michael Minnis, an attorney for a group of media outlets in Oklahoma City, argued that many local media groups do not have the financial means to send a reporter to cover the trials in Denver.
Both the prosecution and defense said the broadcast should be a private viewing for victims and family members of those killed in the blast.
Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols are charged in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building that killed 168 people and injured about 500 others. Their separate trial dates have not been set.
