Attorneys for Huntsville Officer David Michael McCoy also asked a court to bar lawyers involved in the case from talking about it outside court.

A Madison County judge didn’t immediately rule on McCoy’s requests and instead scheduled a hearing for Jan. 18.

McCoy is charged in the off-duty slaying of Courtney Spraggins of Trion, Georgia, whose family identified her as being pregnant with the child of McCoy, her boyfriend.
