Lawyers for the Irwin County man accused of murdering Tara Grinstead don't want his trial jury to hear the word "murder."
They also don't want the jury to see Ryan Duke in a jail jumpsuit, and they want to hold a hearing on whether the media can film the trial and what they can show.
Those are among two dozen motions filed in Irwin County Superior Court in the Duke case.
He's the man accused of killing Tara Grinstead, a high-school teacher, in 2005.
His lawyers argue that intense interest in the case will require measures to protect his right to a fair trial.
Their motions also challenge the makeup of the grand jury that indicted Duke and look to change the jury selection for the trial.
No trial date has been set for Duke.
A second man, Bo Dukes. is charged with helping him hide Grinstead's body.
The two men were charged last year after an 11-year investigation.
