Man accused in Cairo bank killings in court

Man accused in Cairo bank killings in court

BENTON, IL (KFVS) - The man accused of killing two Cairo bank employees and wounding a third was in court Wednesday morning.

James Watts looked like he had lost weight since his last court appearance as he was noticeably much thinner.

Watts' attorneys and the prosecution are trying to iron out the details before his trial starts in early December.

The major sticking point in Wednesday's discussion is the ability of the defense to look at un-censored documents on their own terms.

Right now, those documents are only available at the U.S. Attorney's office.

No decision was made Wednesday on this issue and the judge said he will look at the setup before he makes a decision.
