Tifton - - Superior Court Judge Gary McCorvey banned all media Friday from covering the pre-trial hearings of a man accused of murdering six Hispanic men and assaulting four others in 2005.

McCorvey wouldn't allow our camera or even our reporter inside the hearing and he banned all people involved with Jamie Deamtrive Underwood's case from talking to the media about any of the pre-trial hearings.

The judge also ordered all court transcripts remain sealed until after the trial which is set to begin in August.

Underwood is facing the death penalty. His family gathered at the Tift County Law Enforcement Center Friday.

Underwood and Stacey Sims are charged with brutal attacks that left six people dead in Tift County back in September 2005 and other crimes on a Hispanic family in Colquitt county.

Underwood's attorney is asking for a change of venue and to restrict some statements he made to police from appearing as evidence in court.
