Gag order extended in cold case murder trial proceedings


Both sides involved with the upcoming murder trial stemming from a 40-year-old cold case agreed to keep quiet about information on the proceedings. 

Dawn Koons was killed back in 1979, found strangled in her apartment and the apparent victim of a sexual assault.

On Dec. 20 — nearly 40 years later — police announced a new break in the case and the arrest of Prentice Foreman.

Last week, prosecutors requested a temporary gag order to stop attorneys from speaking to the media about the case. 

The temporary order expired today and another one was issued which both sides agreed to. 
Foreman will be back in court Feb. 15.
