Documents detailing Mass. teacher's slaying sought
SALEM, Mass. - More details may be released in court in the death of a popular Danvers teacher who police say was killed by one of her students.
The Associated Press, The Boston Globe and other media organizations have asked a Salem District Court judge to lift an order that bars public viewing of search warrants and other documents in the case of 14-year-old Philip Chism.
Some of the documents are expected to be made public Friday.
Chism has been held without bail since shortly after the Oct. 22 slaying of 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer, whose body was found behind Danvers High School.
He was indicted Thursday on charges of murder, aggravated sexual assault, and armed robbery. Authorities say he sexually assaulted Ritzer with an object before killing and robbing her.
